Xavier’s Wellness and Counseling Center won first place in a national competition featuring various HBCUs around the country. Recently, I was able to sit down with Chantel Gant of the counseling center to discuss the poster’s theme as well as the contest and what the grant provides for us as Xavier students.

Gant, who is one of the counselors at the counseling center, gave us some knowledge on the HBCU-CFE Grant, and what it’s being used for on our campus. The HBCU-CFE Grant is a grant that is based at the Morehouse School of Medicine, which has been around since 2009. With this grant, it allows students to intern in different behavioral health offices in New Orleans as well as different workshops during the semester.
