Student Needs Project

Northeast State’s Student Needs Project (SNP) attempts to address non-academic, socioeconomic factors that impact student success and retention. These factors include housing, food security, transportation, parenting, and computer/Internet access.

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.
