We hope you’re doing well and taking some time for yourself before classes start. Here’s our CSG rundown for August:
Anonymous Surveys (woo!):
Food Accessibility Survey
This survey aims to understand how many students get their groceries, how much they pay, accessibility to food, and on campus food resource utilization. Upon completion, you will be asked if you wish to be entered in a drawing for a chance to win one of five $50 gift cards. This survey should take about ten minutes. You can access the survey here.
Late Night Transportation on Campus
We would like to evaluate the existing late night transportation options in relation to your needs. This survey should take no longer than ten minutes. You can access the survey here.
Testimonials for P/NRC Grading
Please fill out this testimonial form for us to better understand how P/NRC grading impacts your learning experience. This form should take no longer than five minutes to complete. You can access the form here.
The healing program is an initiative aimed to serve students who are affected by identity-based violence by providing a means to find a long-term culturally sensitive provider as well as funding support to see the provider. You can find a culturally sensitive provider using this guide. Here is the link to apply for funding support for any aspect of therapy (cost of transportation, co-pay, etc.)
