Mission Statement

The office of Student Outreach and Support (SOS) works with colleagues across campus to facilitate outreach, intervention, and follow-up care to students who are experiencing crisis or distress that impacts their ability to thrive – socially, personally, or academically. SOS is committed to being a resource for students by creating an environment centered in advocacy, providing holistic student support, and building intentional connections to campus resources. 

SOS commits to welcoming students with warmth, compassion, and authenticity. In our direct work with students, we aim to empower them to explore their own agency and decision-making. Understanding that students are whole, complex people we strive to provide support that centers a student in the context of their identities, cultures, values, and unique lived experiences.
