Student Care & Advocacy
Students may experience a variety of challenges during their college career. Student Care & Advocacy is a central location that coordinates efforts with campus partners to assist students who encounter challenges or concerns in achieving success at Penn State.
Please reach out if you or someone you know has been impacted any of the following:
- Medical emergencies or long-term illness
- Mental health concerns
- Chronic conditions
- Death of an immediate family member
- Food insecurity
- Housing insecurity
- Natural disasters
- Academic distress
- Unexpected events or challenges
Our purpose is to empower students to overcome obstacles to their growth both inside and outside the classroom. We encourage students to maximize their educational experience and prepare them for involvement in the larger community and for life beyond college.
We welcome any opportunity to provide consultation, answer questions, respond to concerns, or direct you to the resource best equipped to meet your needs.
