The Georgia Tech Counseling Center (GTCC) stands in solidarity with Asian-American communities to condemn anti-Asian racism in all forms, particularly the recent rise of anti-Asian hate and hateful rhetoric in the metro Atlanta area and throughout the country. We express condolences to those affected by hate, intimidation, threats, and violence and condemn such acts. The Counseling Center continues to offer support, and we encourage students to reach out to GTCC for additional support and resources.
The Peer Coaching Program (PCP) was developed by the Counseling Center to offer an innovative way for Tech students to access a unique type of support to facilitate academic and personal success. The PCP trains Tech students to provide one-on-one support and education to their GT peers and offers Peer Coaches ongoing supervision in the provision of these services. Services provided by the PCP are considered consultation services, as opposed to counseling or therapy. Students serving as Peer Coaches are trained paraprofessionals who assist consultees in identifying and accomplishing specific academic, social or other personal goals related to concerns commonly faced in college.
