Student Care

 

 

College life can be hard.

For this reason, Student Care exists to provide students with individualized, collaborative care that promotes academic success and personal well-being. We believe that each student has been created by God with a unique purpose, and our primary goal is to walk alongside students through any circumstances that impact their college experience. These circumstances include, but certainly are not limited to, unexpected life events, personal crises, illness or injury, hospitalization, loss of a loved one, and mental health challenges. Student Care acts as a bridge between students and the wider CBU community, coordinating on- and off-campus resources for students and working to ensure that each student feels seen and supported.

The Student Care staff is also available to assist Students who are experiencing significant (physical and mental) health challenges that may prevent the successful completion of classes. In these situations, the Student Care staff can assist in determining if a Voluntary Medical Withdrawal may be appropriate.

Student Care is located within the Student Support Suite in Lancer Plaza.

 

Resources

Student Care collaborates with other on-campus offices to ensure students receive well-rounded, intentional care. Below, you will find descriptions of the offices we work closest with and links to their webpages.

Student Care’s main priority is the mental and spiritual health of our students. With this in mind, we work closely with the CBU Counseling Center to provide well-rounded and intentional care for students. The Counseling Center provides students with one-on-one therapy sessions that are tailored to their unique needs by our accomplished team of therapists.

Student Care works with the Office of Disability Services to assist students who need academic and housing accommodations. We want every student at CBU to succeed, and our Disability Services team helps make that happen. Click the link below to view their webpage and get more information about requesting accommodations.

Office of Disability Services

Student Care works with the Office of Academic Advising and its well-equipped team of Student Success Coaches that make it up. The office’s main purpose is to develop strategies for student success through a cooperative teaching and learning experience. Student Success Coaches provide students with help in academic planning, registration and scheduling assistance, and helps with petition requests for undergraduate and graduate students. The Office of Academic Advising is available to assist with questions and connect students to CBU resources that will help them excel.

Office of Academic Advising

Student Care works with Spiritual Life because we value the transformation that spiritual guidance brings to challenging circumstances. As a community rooted in Christ, we want students to seek Jesus, the gentle and humble Shepherd, in times of suffering. We rely on our Spiritual Life team as they are equipped to readily walk alongside students and guide them toward Jesus during difficult seasons and trials.

Office of Spiritual Life

Student Care works with the Title IX office and our Title IX coordinator to ensure that the CBU campus remains an environment that is free of discrimination on the basis of sex, including all forms of sexual misconduct. CBU considers sex discrimination and sexual misconduct in all forms to be a serious offense. As such, if any cases arise that require intervention from our Title IX office, Student Care follows up with students who have been victimized or harassed to provide resources and support. Additionally, Student Care works with the Title IX office to support pregnant students and ensure that each woman’s unique needs are met throughout their pregnancies. Student Care helps pregnant students communicate with professors regarding absences, delivery dates, and recovery times. Additionally, Student Care will work with the Title IX office to ensure that all Title IX regulations are being met for each pregnant student. Visit our Title IX office’s webpage to learn more.
