For Faculty/Staff: When to Refer a Student
Personal Student Support
Our primary support efforts focus on assisting students in successfully transitioning through a variety of challenging circumstances that can impact their lives, both inside and outside the classroom. These situations may include personal or family illness, loss, financial stress, academic access, living issues, and other forces that may interfere with their well-being, success, and/or academic retention. We help educate students on resources that are available to them both within the College of Engineering as well as Central Campus resources.
In addition to our direct services to students, OSSA partners in many ways with other campus and community agencies to provide access and support to relevant resources that may also help with a student’s personal and/or academic success. A sampling of those departments, agencies and resources can be found in our “On/Off Campus Resources” section.
