The Dean of Students Office advocates for students, both individually and collectively, by ensuring that programs and services reflecting best practices are in place to support their success. The Dean of Students works collaboratively with the Counseling Center, Health Services, Residence Life and the Assistant Dean of Students to ensure that students are able to succeed in and out of the classroom.
The student advocacy efforts of the Dean of Students Office include the following:
The Campus Assessment, Resource, and Education (CARE) Team can help students with issues that included but are not limited to depression, anxiety, panic attacks, erratic behavior, missing extended class time, substance use/abuse, medical problems, self-destructive behavior, family issues, adjustment issues, etc.
Should you face an emergency situation on campus, the first report should be to Public Safety at 718-862-7500. Less emergent situations can be reported to the CARE Team and a level of intervention needed will be determined. The CARE Team may, at times, initiate an emergency response.
The United States Government Accountability Office reviewed 31 studies and found that most studies indicate over 30% of college students are experiencing Food Insecurity. Many of these students have to choose between buying food or paying for their education. (source)
