Despite our hopes and best efforts, we all encounter crisis situations during our lives. These crises may be personal, in our communities, national or international in scope. In Student Affairs, we have several resources to help you.Student Crisis Fund (website)
The fund provides emergency financial assistance when personal crisis and
unexpected tragedy occurs. One student lost
textbooks and clothes in an off-campus fire. Another was unable to pay
for a medical prescription. And a third student had emergency surgery
and required assistance with medical expenses.
We are not only committed to providing students with opportunities for extraordinary growth; we are also committed to assisting them through extraordinary times of crisis. Because of the Student Crisis Fund, students experiencing trauma are not forced to look beyond the University of Maryland community.
For more information, visit our web site at www.crisisfund.umd.edu.
