Student Life

Care Reporting and Referrals

Western Illinois University is committed to the emotional and physical well-being of all students, as well as their academic success. SDSC provides guidance, assistance, and support to students regarding academic, behavioral, emotional, physical, and social concerns. Students can self refer or be referred by faculty, staff, or Leatherneck Care Referral.

Once a student has been identified as needing support, SDSC staff will respond with an inclusive and suitable response to that particular concern and will connect with the individual to help resolve the issue. Connection methods include emails, phone calls, personal check-ins, communication with academic staff, and meetings with other professionals. The appropriateness of each connection method is determined on a case-by-case basis.

Referral Partners

SDSC works closely with both campus and community partners to ensure that students have the resources needed to create a network of support. Some of our referral partners are:

Beu Health Center

University Counseling Center

University Advising and Academic Support Center
