Resources for Students
A key component of the work in Student Affairs is to provide students with information and referrals to campus, crisis and community resources.  Student Affairs is able to offer many resources to students of concern including medical and mental health services; access to the Student Affairs food pantry (short term) and long term referrals; spiritual development; one time – emergency financial assistance; short term transportation assistance; conflict resolution and other behavioral interventions.
