The Offices of Student Life are committed to supporting faculty, staff, and advisors:

Faculty, staff, and advisors are critical partners in our work with students. Often, you will be the first person to notice that a student needs assistance. We encourage you to utilize your relationship with the student to help them find the answers to their problems.

Faculty, staff, and advisors can ask a student what's going on to get an understanding of the issues affecting them. Your referral of a student to a campus support resource such as CAPS or Academic Success Center is a good start to them managing their situation. The Resources page may link you to information that can guide your conversation or referral.

When a student's needs are more than you can provide assistance for, we can help. Together, we can come up with a plan for how to help the student, identify appropriate referral services, and, when necessary, make a plan for follow-up.
