Black History Month

University Health Services celebrates Black History Month and the accomplishments and contributions that Black students, staff, and faculty have made and continue to make across our campus. We honor the strengths and resilience of the Black community. We acknowledge and appreciate that Black students are often at the forefront of movements to create positive change on this campus.

MHS also honors the ongoing struggle to create a more inclusive and representative campus environment and recognizes that more needs to be done to improve the sense of belonging for students of color at UW-Madison.

We recognize that communities of color are disproportionately impacted by issues such as oppression, prejudice, and inequitable systems of power and privilege. As a health care institution, we are committed to supporting Black students through our services, including our Students of Color and Men of Color group counseling sessions, our efforts to match students with providers of specific identities, our partnerships at the Red Gym, and other outreach programming.

We encourage all students to engage in events on campus in celebration of Black History Month:
