General Advocacy and Support

Our students face many obstacles that can take a toll on their academic performance and overall well-being. No matter how unique or common the issues our students face, our advocates are ready to help our students help themselves. If you're struggling with an issue that is affecting your academic performance or overall well-being, please get in touch with an advocate.


Most offices on campus run on regular business hours (8:30 a.m.–5 p.m, Monday–Friday). If you contact them when the office is closed, a staff member will reach out to you during the next business day to assist you.
