Letter to the editor: Eagles Take Care program offers guidance for students

Dear Eagles,
Did you know that the Dean of Students’ Office has a Care Team that was established to assist and support students by offering guidance and referrals?
The DOS Care Team has been in existence for over four years and is currently comprised of nine full-time staff members in the Dean of Students’ Office who serve daily on a rotating basis.  An assigned DOS Care Team member is available on a walk-in basis from 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. on Monday through Friday.
We don’t replace CAPS or UPD, but we do provide support and referrals to the appropriate areas in order to help students find solutions to academic, social and personal issues that may impact the potential for student success.
The Eagles Take Care campaign was launched this year to remind our community to foster and promote a University campus in which we not only take care of ourselves, but we also take of others.
The Dean of Students’ Office is located on the second floor in Cohen Center room 288 in the “Fishbowl.”  We can be reached by calling (239) 590-7900.   Additional information is available on our website at http://studentservices.fgcu.edu/dos, or you may also email the DOS Care Team at [email protected]
We hope you have a wonderful semester!
Michele Yovanovich, EdD.
Dean of Students
