Social Worker for Student Support & Resources

The Social Worker for Student Support and Resources assists students experiencing challenging situations and seeks to reduce the impact of these stressors through connection with campus partners, community resources and support systems, while encouraging success through individualized planning. 

In addition, the social worker offers services that raise awareness, provide education, and respond to the impact of dating/domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking (DVSAS). Students experiencing DVSAS can receive confidential, trauma-informed supportive advocacy as they navigate through the healing process.  

Students will have the opportunity to work closely with the social worker to identify challenges, discuss support options, and be connected to resources. The social worker will follow up with students as needed to coordinate these resources and to help them manage their success plan.
