The Center for Cura Personalis (CCP) is an innovative department within the Division of Student Development that focuses on providing education and support to help students be their best selves. "Cura personalis" means care for the whole person and the Center for Cura Personalis takes this ethos of holistic care seriously, aiming to help every student feel cared for, supported, and valued by way of three functional areas: case management, wellness education, and the Collegiate Recovery Community. These three areas serve students in many ways including through proactive outreach and educational programs about healthy choices, interventions for students who may be struggling, referrals to on and off campus resources, and designated case managers to provide support for students who may need a little extra assistance along the way. The goal of the CCP is to find numerous ways to provide wellness education so that students never find themselves in crisis, but if they do, we are here to help.
The primary focus of the staff in the Center for Cura Personalis' (CCP) case management area is to support students through challenges, connect them to appropriate campus and community resources, promote growth in self-advocacy, and empower students to navigate toward their own solutions and shape their own lives. Case Managers work collaboratively across the institution to develop support plans that provide a caring and seamless student learning experience.
