Who We Are

Mission: To support student success, we create a culture of caring on campus.
Vision: When students need help everyone knows, DoSO is the place to go.

We assist students with a variety of concerns by working directly with them and connecting them to appropriate resources on campus. We also consult with and serve as a resource for faculty and staff, parents, families, and friends, working together to serve students.
