Student Care Center

The Student Care Center opened in the Fall of 2019 and houses MSU Denver’s case management services. The Student Care Center provides holistic, non-clinical case management support to MSU Denver Students who are facing challenging life circumstances that may prevent them from otherwise pursuing their educational goal.

The Student Care Center oversees the following initiatives:

Case Management

?
The Student Care Center provides non-clinical case management to students. Case managers do outreach on behalf of the CARE Team. CARE Referrals  are meant to provide a mechanism for community members to report a student who is engaging in concerning behavior or needs additional support related to life circumstances. Case managers are available to help students work through:

  •  Struggling with a difficult life circumstance or health issues
  • Thought of harm to self, others or locations
  • Experiencing significant loss such as the death of a family member
  • Victim of harassment, stalking, interpersonal violence or sexual assault
  • Struggling with food and housing insecurity or any basic needs concerns
  • A need for assistance with public benefits such as SNAP

Please contact the Student CARE Center at 303-615-0006 or file a CARE referral online at msudenver.edu/care if you or someone you know may benefit from this support. 

Roadrunner Food Pantry

?
If you are struggling to make ends meet, pay for groceries or afford a meal on campus, please visit Tivoli 262 to access the Roadrunner Food Pantry. The Roadrunner Food Pantry is available for all registered MSU Denver Students to receive snacks and food for meal preparation at home. Staff in the Food Pantry will assist students not only with access to immediate food resources but will also refer them to additional campus and community services. Please note the Roadrunner Food Pantry is currently closed but is still supporting students through a Mobile Food Pantry and electronic gift-cards.

Student Emergency Retention Fund

?The MSU Denver Student Emergency Retention Fund is an emergency stipend for MSU Denver students who are dealing with unanticipated and/or catastrophic life events that might otherwise cause the student to stop or pause the pursuit of their educational goals. Stipends are usually capped at $500. Students can fill out an application online if they meet the criteria or they can call the Student Care Center at 303-615-0006 to discuss their situation.
