Boise State University issued a timely warning on Nov. 14 regarding a report of a bias-motivated assault on campus. We recognize folks in our community often have their own experiences of harm, and reading or hearing about situations like this can cause us to reflect on our own safety.

We want you to know we are here for you, and care deeply for your safety and wellbeing.

The Gender Equity Center offers a lounge space where you can find community; speak with a Licensed Master Social Worker for confidential support; and receive referrals to campus and community resources. We are open Monday - Friday, 9AM - 5PM in the Student Union Building (SUB, 2nd floor).*

Prior to this incident and currently, our team continues to work on several projects, aimed at enhancing the knowledge and skills of our community to prevent violence. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you’d like to partner with us on growing knowledge on campus to prevent violence.

Boise State has multiple resources available around campus to support you during this time:

-University Health Services offers counseling and no-cost, walk-in crisis appointments ()

- You can call 208-426-6911 at any time 24/7 to request a Security Es**rt from the Department of Public Safety ()

- The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is also an option for eligible employees that provides short-term counseling services

*Please note, the Student Union Building will be closed Nov 18th - Nov 26th due to building renovations. The Gender Equity Center team will still be available via email, phone, and Zoom–please do not hesitate to reach out for support. We care about you, and we are here for you.
