With the continued news of violence both domestically and abroad, we would like to remind students that CAPS is a supportive resource for the RU community.  You do not need to identify as a survivor or know a victim of violence to experience the emotional and physical effects of violence. The impact of violence can be immediate for some, and for others may not appear until some time has passed.  For some, listening, talking and sharing can help. Supportive services are available for all RU students. To contact CAPS, call 848-932-7884.

Please see below for additional information on how to care for yourself and others:


RU faculty and staff can find counseling and support through the University’s Employee Assistance Program at (732) 235-5930.
