Student Case Management Services
Student Case Management services advocates for all students by providing direct case management services by connecting students to appropriate campus and community resources through an individual case management approach. The Office of the Dean of Students Student Case Management area serves the University and individual students by arranging, coordinating, monitoring, evaluating and advocating for students who are experiencing significant difficulties. Students are provided with referrals, resources, and follow-up if needed. We are dedicated to ensuring our students are well supported and connected here at BGSU.
Student case managers serve students of concern by assisting those referred or those that self-identify that they are having an issue. Some issues include: academic support, mental/physical health support, absence notification, food insecurity, financial insecurity, seeking additional resources, problems with peers, faculty, and staff, bias incidents and more.
