How We Can Help
Students can connect with their neighborhood teams for support and resources with the Resident Director (RD) being a great place to start. Please also visit the Neighborhood Staff page for more information on local staff. Our priority is to care for students and their residential/neighborhood communities.
Here Are Some Ways We Can Help
- One-on-one Partnerships: We offer supportive consultation, problem-solving, assessment and connection. We strive to empower students throughout the process of understanding and responding to their needs.
- Referrals: We identify the people and places on campus that can provide additional support and connect students with the tools they need to meet their needs in the moment. This can include resources for coping with stress, anxiety, grief, mental health concerns, academic issues, and the impact of alcohol/other drugs.
- Managing Relationships: We provide support in navigating the challenges and opportunities related to living and learning in community with others. These dynamics can involve roommates, friendships, and other social groups.
- COVID-19 Isolation Support: We coordinate resources for students impacted by COVID-19, including making arrangements for temporary space and meal delivery, and providing information and general check-ins.
- Intervention: We reach out to students and perform wellness checks, often in collaboration with Academic Advising, Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), and the Stanford Department of Public Safety (SUDPS). We also debrief critical incidents and help manage community impact.
- Urgent Response: We provide 24/7 on-site response and support from Resident Directors, who are equipped to receive and address concerns for student well-being. This can include urgent referrals to university resources. Our on-call system is available to Resident Fellows and residential student staff when they need immediate support in their community.
- University Policy Education and Enforcement: We uphold university policies and procedures and ensure that reporting requirements are met. This includes the Fundamental Standard, Honor Code, Residence Agreement, and Title IX.
