Student Outreach and Support

Student Outreach and Support (SOS) works collaboratively with campus and community resources to provide support to students experiencing distress, ensuring the community at large remains safe while the student involved gains the necessary resources to remain successful academically and personally.

Modified Services During COVID-19

During the 2020-2021 academic year, SOS will continue to support students in times of distress. Supportive services and case management support will be provided virtually (WebEx, Zoom, telephone), and when needed, meetings will occur in a space that will allow for appropriate social distancing. For addition information regarding safety precautions the university is taking, please reference the La Verne Safe Return Plan.
