Faculty and Staff

As faculty and staff work closely with students, it is likely that they will encounter students who are experiencing challenges in life. SOS has developed the following resources to assist faculty and staff support students.

Staff to Know

When supporting students, it is imperative they are quickly connected with the appropriate resources. Reference this list of “staff to know” to assist with these connections.

Syllabus Language

The life experiences of students are brought into the classroom and can impact their academics. In an effort to de-stigmatize help seeking and increase awareness of campus resources, SOS asks faculty to include language regarding hardships and resources in their syllabi.
