UChicago HELP

UChicago HELP

UChicago HELP provides a continuum of care and comprehensive services to holistically support students that may be experiencing difficulties. Through our various services, we educate on University policy, liaise between on and off campus resources, and assist students in finding their own voice. UChicago HELP is a consultative resource to the University community in responding to student needs and concerns.  

In support of the University’s overall commitment to diversity and inclusion, UChicago HELP values empowerment, resiliency, growth and the wellbeing of all of our students. We leverage our expertise to build relationships with campus partners to remove barriers that may impede student success.
