Case Management Team

The Case Management Team is available to assist all students build support networks, develop relationships with campus and community resources, and to navigate challenges related to medical, emotional, personal, financial, or adjustment issues. We connect students to the resources necessary to provide comprehensive, wrap-around care.

While we primarily work directly with students, we also offer consultation services to faculty, parents, and staff helping students in need. Our goal is to promote a culture of care amongst the entire community.

In situations where medical or personal needs might be better addressed away from campus, we also assist students with all aspects of the leave and readmission process.

All students and members of the College community are encouraged to contact any member of the Case Management Team.
