MiraCosta College embraces a holistic and seamless approach to student learning and success. It is our goal to support our students as they face personal and academic barriers, which may hinder their ability to achieve their educational goals. As you know, we have a very diverse student body who benefit from a myriad of support services. Through our programs and services, we will demonstrate that we are committed to their success by creating a culture of care and support. Our culture of care and support will consist of:
- Ensuring that all students feel like they matter and belong at MiraCosta College;
- Identifying students who are struggling personally or academically, at the earliest point possible;
- Connecting students to on and off campus resources to support their short and long-term needs.
The Campus Assessment, Resources and Education (CARE) Team is committed to taking a holistic approach to help our students succeed while addressing any challenges they may be experiencing to meet their basic needs such as food, housing, transportation, mental health, childcare, legal aid, etc. On-campus and off-campus resources are often provided to students to help meet their short-term and long-term needs with the goal of improving the outcomes of their academic and personal success.
If you have a concern about an individual's wellbeing and would like the CARE Team to connect, please complete and submit a CARE Referral Form.
