The Basic Needs Center serves as a physical resource hub for basic needs resources and services. The Center also is a space for students to create community and access coordinated support for their basic needs. We are committed to cultivating wellness and belonging in the Basic Needs Center space.
Basic Needs Security refers to the food, housing, and economic security of our community. We understand that basic needs have a direct impact on the mental-emotional-physical health, wellness, academic performance, professional development, and holistic success of students.
The quality of life of our students has a major impact on their sense of belonging, persistence, graduation, and overall experience. Therefore, we refuse to accept hunger, malnourishment, and homelessness as part of our university.
