Getting Students Connected to Support
At MiraCosta College, we want to support our students who may be experiencing personal and academic challenges that hinder their educational goals. Please refer students at the earliest point possible, by submitting a CARE Referral Form so we can connect them to on- and off-campus resources. If you have questions or need support, please email email@example.com to connect with a member of the CARE Team.
We encourage faculty and staff to reach out for support in navigating the esources that are available on campus, remotely, and in our community. Some of those resources can be found below.
- Reshaping Your School Schedule During Remote Learning
Utilize this guide to enhance the student remote learning experience. This document was designed to help students rethink and create a sustainable schedule in these unprecedented times.
- CARE Resource Guide for Basic Needs
Utilize this guide to locate community resources that will support with various basic needs such as housing, food, transportation, childcare, and financial insecurity.
- Basic Needs Report
This report outlines data captured from the Pre-Registration Survey on students’ basic needs concerns related to housing, food, and transportation insecurity. Please check out the following reports: Fall 2021, Fall 2022, Fall 2023. Note: We believe the numbers are higher than what is reported due to the questions being optional for student to complete.
- Basic Needs Language for Canvas and Syllabi (For faculty)
These examples can be copy/pasted into your syllabus or Canvas page(s) or tailored to fit your unique class(es). Including basic needs language for Canvas and Syllabi help support a culture of care and ensure a network of support.
When the CARE Program or it’s team members are unavailable, students may dial 2-1-1 to speak with a trained live operator to review San Diego County resources or by visiting 2-1-1 San Diego to search for available resources online.
