We help distressed students reach their academic goals and maintain a safe learning environment.
The Center for Care & Resilience team works collaboratively with students and the university to support individuals who are experiencing distress in their lives. We gather information and assess the factors contributing to the concerns of a student, family member, or administrator. We meet with students to create and implement a plan that supports self-advocacy, growth, and a return to a level of functioning most likely to promote success. That plan includes connecting students to appropriate on-campus and community resources that best support their needs.
We’re here to help
We assist students who are experiencing distress in their lives by connecting students to university and community resources. We develop a plan with the student that supports self-advocacy and growth.
How to Refer
The referral process for 974-HELP makes it easy for students to refer themselves or a fellow Vol, and for faculty and staff to refer students who may be experiencing concerning behavior.
What to Expect
Each student who works with a care coordinator will have different needs and will need support in different ways. Students are encouraged to make the most of their time with a care coordinator in order to maximize their progress.
