Within Rutgers Student Health CAPS we are attuned to the impact that the Executive Order restricting entry to the U.S. for individuals from seven countries has on our students.  We understand that fear, sadness, anger and worry may be associated with this action as it directly impacts the lives of many of our students.  Please know that we are here to offer support.   An integral aspect of the CAPS philosophy and mission is the recognition that diversity along all dimensions is our strength as a community.  We are a welcoming environment for all students and invite you to seek out support during these challenging times.
