Support Services: International Students
During this time of uncertainty, Vanderbilt is committed to supporting the overall health and well-being of the entire campus community, through resources that offer support, stress management and enhanced resilience across all demographics. Vanderbilt recognizes that COVID-19 has magnified disparities in a number of areas (e.g., housing, technology, finances, access) among and between various populations of students, which compounds the negative effects on well-being.
We are enhancing support for our students’ health and well-being by enhancing Student Health’s ability to best serve the student population through collaboration with the Nurse Faculty Practice Division in the School of Nursing. We also are providing new telehealth options, additional programming and more through the Student Care Network, a holistic network of wellness services and resources available to all Vanderbilt students.
The University Counseling Center provides access to professionals with experience helping specific identity groups. The Provost’s Office for Inclusive Excellence, through its identity centers and identity initiatives, will continue its commitment to fostering a safe and welcoming community that is inclusive and respectful of differences. The office is launching identity initiatives this academic year to support international students as well as first-generation students.
