The U & I Care program has been developed to educate students about the importance of supporting each other, asking for personal assistance, and helping to identify concerning student behavior. Faculty and staff are also encouraged to participate in this community-wide effort. The appropriate office should be notified when a student is in need of assistance.
As members of the university community, students should know that there is a network of support available to them, with multiple places to access the support. Students play an important role in this effort: they can use it or they can help someone else. You may have questions or want information on a variety of topics that address challenges college students may be experiencing. Please remember that in an emergency you should always call 5-5555 or 911. Otherwise, the links below will provide you with resources that may help you or someone you know.
