Student Support and Advocacy assists students and families in resolving complex issues which adversely affect a student’s academic success and/or collegiate experience. Whether the issues are personal, academic, or financial, we evaluate and present options to students, and facilitate communication and connections with university departments. Through our interactions, we strive to empower students to take full advantage of USC’s resources and opportunities. Housed in the Office of the Vice Provost for Student Affairs, Student Support and Advocacy serves to enhance the quality of service offered to all USC students. Our goal is to create an environment that is safe and welcoming for students, facilitates students’ successful completion of their academic programs, and encourages students’ to fully participate in the USC community.
