What are satellite services?
Satellite services are offered by a number of Student Care Network and other offices in locations across the University’s campus. These services are intended to provide quick and convenient access to resources in order to consult on a current concern, explore support options, and establish connections with staff members. In most instances, satellite services are not intended to be used for routine care or appointments, but may be an entry point by which students become more comfortable with or knowledgeable about a resource that they may need regularly in the future.
