Student Affairs highlight: Student Outreach & Support (SOS)

Student Outreach & Support (SOS) is a new office within student affairs that is the first face of CARE Team that a student would come in contact with if a Care Report is submitted for that student. The office is a team of five, consisting of a director and four fulltime case managers.

SOS works hard to get students connected to the appropriate resources whether that is on campus or off campus and within their respected communities. SOS works with students facing concerns ranging from mental health, homelessness, food insecurities, transition issues/student belonging, being overwhelmed and grief/loss just to name a few.

All of the office’s services are free and voluntary. To learn more about WSU’s Care Team and the services SOS offers, visit the CARE Team webpage. Those interested in having the SOS team present to their department, class or organization about CARE Team and how to submit Care Reports, can file an inquiry online.
