Counseling team members Aisha Saeed and Latoria White are taking on new roles at the Women's Center for the 2020-21 academic year.

The Women’s Center has long been known as a welcoming place for students seeking counseling or a place to gain experience in advocating for justice and equity. In recent years, our Counseling and Wellness Services Team has grown to include new staff members and has extended the resources offered to better serve the variety of needs of a diverse range of UVA students.

This fall, I’ve been visiting each of the center's eight different internship teams for one of their meetings, luxuriating in the opportunity to enjoy a behind-the-scenes peek at their work. It’s unsurprising but still fascinating to see the personality of each team reflected in the interns, most of whom are new to me each year, just as it is in the staff members mentoring them, most of whom I know quite well by now.
