StMU Cares – Student

The StMU CARES program is a non-disciplinary, person-centered way to connect students to support and resources and address barriers to academic success. Students can refer themselves or connect with support resources directly. Faculty, staff and Peer Mentors can also refer.

Students supported by the StMU CARES program are better positioned to improve their academic performance and wellbeing and thrive in their studies.

How it works

  1. Students fill out the online referral form or submit an email referral to
  2. StMU CARES Team will assess the needs noted in the referral.
  3. Dependent on the urgency of the level of needs/support/resources required one of the following will occur:
    • Immediate appointment set up with the student to individually tailor resources and a success plan.
    • An appointment is set to discuss needs with the student and refer to appropriate internal/external supports.
    • Resources shared with students on the topic of need (online module, website, workbook etc.).
  4. A follow-up to ensure students have all the support they need to thrive in their StMU career.
