We are deeply saddened by the hatred that continues to persist in our communities, our nation and the world around us. We recognize that the psychological, social, and emotional impacts of systematic oppression and hate violence have on us our tremendous. Our goal is to heal, preserve, and uplift the mental health of every student. As such, we will continue to denounce bigotry and oppression in every form and remain committed to providing a culturally aware, affirming, and inclusive environment for all our students.
Music has been shown to increase motivation and relaxation, and decrease pain and stress. With the help of the AU community, we've compiled a few playlists to get you started. These songs are only suggestions and a compliment to other strategies to support your mental health — not a replacement for professional support. (The playlists are not an endorsement for products or services, including Spotify.)
