Community Advising Network

NAME:Dharla Torres
POSITION:Campus- Wide Senator
PROJECT NAME:Community Advising Network
PURPOSE AND GOALS:The purpose of this project is to expand the currently offered counseling and psychological services offered on campus to include a culturally specific counseling services at UCSD. Currently, Dr. Catherine Thompson and Dr. Hercilia Corona are among the three only culturally specific counselors at UCSD, as the third is currently on maternity leave. Dr. Thompson focuses her efforts on helping communities of color at the Cross Cultural Center, black students, bi-/ multi-cultural students, LGBTQ identifying students, and womxn on campus, while Dr. Corona focuses on helping Chicanx/ Latinx students at UCSD. The idea is to provide a culturally specific counselor to better serve our communities of color on campus; this would include, but is not limited to, counseling specifically for Native American, Asian, Pacific Islander, Middle Eastern, Muslim, and Undocumented students on campus. This program would be modeled after the already implemented CAN (community advising network) program at UC Davis.
PARTNERSHIPS (Resources and people):Dr. Catherine Thompson TBD
OUTCOMES:I hope to be able to provide culturally specific counseling services to communities of color, LGBTQIA, and undocumented communities on campus by expanding the current counseling and psychological services provided on campus
