Help students with their basic needs!
College can be a challenging time for students, and during times of stress it is not always easy find the help you need. The UCSC Slug Support Program was created to promote early intervention with students of concern to prevent culminating problems from escalating into a crisis. The goal of the Slug Support Program is to identify students navigating difficult or challenging situations and assist them in resolving their concerns.
UCSC's Slug Support Program is composed of a team of case managers who work directly with students to help them develop a student-centered plan and resolve the barriers they are facing. The Slug Support Emergency Fund issues direct awards to students to help them with their basic needs, such as rent, food, and medical and mental health costs, as well as textbooks and other school supplies.
