On campus resources for students
The Dean of Students office works to help students achieve success in their academic and personal lives. This includes managing the student conduct system and academic support services, running orientation, providing support and case management for students with extenuating personal circumstances, sexual assault and other trauma, and medical contracts; providing services for students with documented disabilities, and working with faculty members regarding student issues and conduct.
The Counseling Center offers a range of mental health services to students wanting help with personal concerns. Our staff specializes in the developmental issues and clinical concerns common to college students such as relationship and family issues, academic and personal stress, identity development and personal growth. Our services include outreach and presentation activities; individual, couples, and group therapy; as well as consultation to friends, faculty, and parents/guardians concerned about a student in distress. We respond to crisis situations by providing immediate intervention, stabilization and support. Students wishing to use our services can do so at no charge by calling for an initial assessment appointment.
The Neurodiversity Working Group includes administrators, faculty, and staff sensitive to the talents and challenges of autistic students. Anyone in the working group can field inquiries from students and their families, but you might start with Co-Chairs Warrenetta Mann and Karin Wulf.
On Campus Resources for Faculty
A University Teaching Project on teaching across the spectrum has produced some information that will be shared with faculty and other interested folks at a February 2013 workshop. After the workshop we will post PowerPoint slides on the The Neurodiversity Working Group website. For more information, contact [[jabur2,Josh Burk]].
We are continuing to build our resources guide. If you have suggestions, please let us know!
