Through individualized consultation, Student Emergency Services provides assistance, intervention, and referrals to support students navigating challenging or unexpected issues that impact their well-being and academic success.
Emergency situations include but are not limited to:
- Missing Student
- Family Emergency
- Fire or Natural Disaster
- Student Death (current or former)
- Medical or Mental Health Concern
- Academic difficulties due to crisis or emergency situations
- Interpersonal Violence (stalking, harassment, physical and/or sexual assault)
Hunger and food insecurity on our campus is real. Between 2015-16 and 2016-17, Student Emergency Services saw a 28% increase in the number of students helped with food-related needs. We know food insecurity makes it hard for students to stay in class and succeed, and our goal is to help students understand and identify food insecurity, as well as making nutritious food readily available to students when they need it.
Along with our food pantry, our team has launched a career closet to make sure every Longhorn has access to professional clothes for job and internship interviews. Emergencies and financial hardships can interfere with student success beyond the classroom, and this program serves as an additional resource for students.
