STUDENT CARE AND ADVOCACY

Student Care and Advocacy is Pellissippi State’s central contact to help students who have nonacademic issues arise while they’re on their educational journeys. We believe in promoting students’ overall well-being and focus on issues around economic stability, housing, transportation, food access and health care.

Student Care and Advocacy’s mission is to provide holistic student support by connecting students to internal and external resources that address nonacademic barriers to success. It’s our job to help students start, stay and finish strong. Whether it’s a flat tire or lack of childcare, an overdue utility bill or an empty pantry, we are here to listen to students and help problem solve.  Please contact us at sca@pstcc.edu.

STUDENT TRANSITIONS AND PERSISTENCE

The newly formed Student Transitions and Persistence office is comprised of New Student Orientation and the PERSiST academic coaching program. We help students navigate the many transitions and challenges they may encounter during their college experience. Our devoted team offers support to ease students’ onboarding process, normalize help-seeking behavior and foster a sense of belonging. Closing equity gaps through service to marginalized or minoritized groups is also at the heart of our office’s work. For more information, please contact us at persist@pstcc.edu.
