Many students experience difficulties during college, either due to academic or personal reasons. Common stressors include illness, injury, mental health, academic hardships or financial issues. These life events can interfere with a student's ability to attain their goals, both inside and outside the classroom.

Auburn Cares is here to help. Designed to support students throughout their college career to achieve their academic and co-curricular goal, Auburn Cares staff work collaboratively with students to identify resources and develop personal action plans.

Some of the services provided by Auburn Cares staff include navigating campus and community resources, exploration of and referral for mental health concerns, coordination and follow-up during and after an illness or injury, financial hardship assistance, guidance navigating university policies and crisis management.

Students can be referred to Auburn Cares by anyone via the online reporting form on the Auburn Cares website.  Students can also self-refer to access support and assistance. Auburn University faculty and staff can request an Auburn Cares outreach presentation for their department if they would like to learn more about the services offered.
