Office of Student Affairs & Wellness:
What is Advocacy
The Office of Student Affairs & Wellness is responsible for
making sure that there is a fair and equitable process in place to
advocate for students as well as ensuring that student due process is
upheld. Our office can assist in advocating for students, &
reccomending next steps depending on what type of process the student
is going through.
The process of advocating for students is so that our staff can look
at your issue, determine if all college rules and regulations have
been followed/applied appropriately, and determine if, you the
student, are being treated fairly. Based on our investigation, we will
make a recommendation on how to proceed. Examples of issues that can
possibly be resolved at the advocacy level are:
- Financial Aid Issues
- Minor Classroom
- Conflict Resolution
- Enrollment Issues
Step by step...
Step One: Request Advocacy
Step Two: Follow Advocacy Recommendations
Depending on your situation, there may be other individuals at the
college that can help. We will recommend who else might be best to
speak with first before you take the next step.
Step Three: Determine Next Steps
Even if you have followed all the recommended steps, and you still
feel that you need more assistance , we will help you determine what
the next steps are for your particular situation.
