UCLA must embrace diversity, challenge hateful means of communication (10/2/17)

We wanted to share a welcome message from Jerry Kang (UCLA’s Vice Chancellor of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion) and Monroe Gordon (Vice Chancellor of student affairs).

Dear BRC family,

Terriel CoxIt is with deep sorrow that we inform you of the sudden passing of Terriel Cox. Terriel had such a beautiful spirit, and we are beyond saddened and heartbroken.

Terriel touched the hearts and lives of many, and left an indelible impact on each one of us. She was a beloved daughter, sister, aunt, partner, friend, and an active member of the collegiate community. She joined the BRC family in 2015, as the Bruin Guardian Scholars Program Director. She moved on to work as a Case Manager with the UCLA Dean of Students, but she maintained a focus on the BRC and continued to build close relationship with BRC staff and students.

We want to honor her memory by reflecting on her beautiful and resilient spirit. Terriel was extremely selfless, always willing to give of herself and did so with grace and love. Terriel was devoted to her career as a Social Worker and was a true star in her profession. Her commitment to foster youth and other individuals in need was unparalleled. She was a loyal soror to her sisters of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated, epitomizing the principles of Service, Scholarship, Sisterhood, and Finer Womanhood for over 16 years.

We will truly miss Terriel. We are all struggling with how to move forward, but we know that we are all blessed to have had Terriel in our lives.

We know that this news is difficult to receive and we want to make sure everyone who needs support is directed appropriately. For students who need support, please contact Counseling and Psychological Services or call the 24 hour crisis line at (310) 825-0768.
