The Council for Equity and Community; Development and Alumni Relations; the Office of Diversity, Inclusion & Equity; Library and Technology Services; the Office of Multicultural Affairs; Student Affairs, and the Office of Student Engagement offered a forum on July 20, 2020 “Are We In This Together? A forum on transforming Lehigh into an antiracist institution.”
Lehigh University’s Counseling Psychology Program partnered with the Bethlehem Area School District (BASD) in 2012 to create the Community Voices Clinic (CVC). CVC is a school-based mental health clinic where doctoral students coordinate training and supervise master’s students to provide therapy services to students in the schools and the Lehigh Valley community members.
The Gender, Race, Inclusion and Trauma Lab is working with local Lehigh Valley community partners Resilient Lehigh Valley, Carbon Lehigh Intermediate Unit 21, Colonial Intermediate Unit 20, Shanthi Project, and Wildlands Conservancy to provide trauma-informed, mindfulness, and social emotional learning (SEL) resources to K-12 educators, students, parents and caregivers.
The partners have created a collaborative resource page that offers weekly lesson plans, self-care strategies, and curated articles to support education, learning, and mental health amongst the COVID-19 pandemic.
