Slug Support Team Overview

Slug Support Case Managers

Slug Support Case Managers are available to assist students facing a wide variety of issues to include difficulty acclimating to college, need for additional resources, and assistance with navigating campus operations.

Slug Support Case Managers serve as a direct point of contact for students, staff, faculty and parents if they are unsure of how to help a student who is struggling at school or are generally concerned about a student. The case managers will gather information regarding the student’s presenting issue, develop an action plan utilizing campus and community resources, and coordinate appropriate services.
