We are here to help! Student advocates work to address student needs and to guide with university policies and procedures.
Student Assistance, Support and Advocacy
Advocates are located on each campus in the Office of the Dean of Students and are available to help with a wide variety of issues that students are faced with. Students are connected with appropriate university and community resources to support their academic success and progress. When experiencing unforeseen circumstances, students are provided assistance within university policies and procedures.
Student Support Advocacy Program
Advocates assist students with many personal and life situations. Specialized support and advocacy is available to students who have experienced sexual assault, relationship violence, or stalking, or family circumstance impacting their academic pursuits, like pregnancy or parenting.
Staff are committed to provide services that are non-judgmental, survivor-focused and empowering. Recognizing that each person’s experience is unique, staff are available to help each survivor assess their reporting options and access resources that meet their personal needs.
