Many students experience difficulties during college from either academic or personal causes. Common stressors include medical, mental health, personal or family crisis, illness, or injury. These life events can interfere with a student's ability to attain their goals, both inside and outside the classroom.
Auburn Cares works collaboratively with students to identify resources and develop personal action plans. Services offered include, but are not limited to: navigating campus and community resources, exploration of and referral for mental health concerns, coordination and follow-up during and after an illness or injury, financial hardship assistance, problem resolution, and crisis management. The Auburn Cares office also operates the Campus Food Pantry, which assists students struggling with food insecurity.
