Being an Effective Resource for Students

As faculty and staff working with students, we sometimes encounter situations, questions, or concerns that are outside our areas of expertise. This workshop will examine various types of situations that arise, review existing University resources, and help attendees identify ways to effectively connect students with appropriate campus personnel and services.

What You Will Learn:

  • How to identify situations in which students need specialized assistance
  • How to locate appropriate university resources
  • How the University Service Center (USC) and other university offices work together—and can work with you—to respond to special circumstances and ensure students are connected to academic, medical, mental health, and other campus resources as needed
  • Effective methods of offering assistance and providing referrals to students
  • Policies and options that may be helpful to students with special circumstances

Who Should Attend:

  • Faculty and staff who want to be more knowledgeable about how to connect students with existing campus resources
  • Faculty and staff who have found themselves wanting to help a student but are unsure where to start
