Our Mission

Visit us in the Campion Student Center, room 231

In the Jesuit spirit of caring for the "whole person," Student Outreach & Support offers  assistance to students at times when they are in need of additional support.  Student Outreach & Support offers support and guidance during difficult situations, or following critical incidents, and fosters awareness of University services and resources to help promote the student academic experience at SJU.

Student Outreach & Support offers individual assistance, guidance and referral to helpful resources for all students during difficult situations.

Philosophy & Overview

Life on campus can be a rewarding experience filled with growth, new experiences and planning for future success.  In the midst of these experiences however, students may  face difficulty, sometimes  personal or emotional in nature.

Student Outreach & Support connects students to appropriate campus or community services through an individual Case Management approach. SO&S serves the University and individual students by arranging, coordinating, monitoring, evaluating, and advocating for students who are in need of assistance. Student Outreach & Support may communicate with appropriate Campus resources on student issues, including mental health hospitalizations and other high risk student situations.

The Wellness, Alcohol & Drug Education (WADE) Program in SO&S advocates for a campus community that supports and empowers students to make healthy lifestyles choices thus fostering academic success and a safer and healthier campus community. Through peer education and collaboration with campus and community organizations, WADE provides outreach and support to empower students to make informed and responsible decisions throughout their lives.
