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.
