Hurricane Harvey Resources and Support

Hurricane Harvey

Over the weekend, Hurricane Harvey made landfall across the eastern shores of Texas.  Communities along the coast, as well as other cities and towns in eastern and central Texas continue to experience its lasting impact.  For some of you, the impact of this major hurricane is personal.  We recognize and understand that your thoughts and energies are with your families and friends in Texas.  While we continue to track the storm, the safety and security of those in its path is close to our hearts. 


For those students seeking resources and support, the Office of the Dean of Students (ODOS) is your beginning point to connect with information and resources across campus and in the community.  At this point, you may still be waiting to figure out what you need; that is more than okay.  When you are ready, the ODOS can talk with you about your academic, counseling, and financial needs, as well as offer general assistance. 


To speak with the a member of the Office of the Dean of Students team, please feel free to walk-in to our office in 1106 SASB North, call (919) 966-4042, or email us at  Regardless of whom you connect with, we all stand ready to support you during and after this natural disaster.
