Student Needs Project
The Student Needs Project (SNP) addresses non-academic and socioeconomic factors that impact student success and retention by promoting access to campus and community resources. Campus initiatives focus on early alert, food security, resource development, student emergency funds, and transportation.
Student Needs Project Consortium
The Student Needs Project Consortium promotes access to campus and community resources that support the health, welfare, and needs of students outside the classroom. The SNP Consortium brings together over 30 campus offices and programs to facilitate this access.
