Partnering to Support Your Student
Though our main role is to work with your student directly, we know that you are an important and critical part of your student’s life. We cannot always share information with you (such as if your student has attended a meeting with our office, whether they have used accommodations or how they are doing in their classes), but we are always open to hearing information that you think might be important for us to know. If you are concerned about your student, please let us know by contacting us at 508-831-4908 or by email at email@example.com. We may be able to reach out and help them get connected to the best resources on campus.
