About the SEAL

The Student Equity and Arts Lounge (SEAL) is a student-centered space where you can grab a cup of coffee or tea, attend a workshop, meet with a tutor, find out about campus resources, get some studying done or just chat with other students.

The SEAL is staffed by Peer Navigators who work in collaboration with full-time staff to assess student needs, provide advocacy and support students.

Located on the 3rd floor of the College Activities Building (CAB) in Room 310. We're open 10:30 am until 6 pm weekdays.

A Student-Centered Space

The SEAL is a student-centered space and Peer Navigators are trained to provide personal and cultural support. We hold space and time for you to share what you need, including:

  • Navigating coming out
  • Managing educational microaggressions
  • Finding media and resources to celebrate your identities
  • Becoming a better advocate for yourself
  • Addressing citizenship concerns
  • Getting support and advocacy to meet your needs
  • Celebrating victories and honors others might not understand
  • Finding culturally-competent medical and mental health providers
  • Honoring non-dominant holidays and traditions in community
