Pod 7: Resource & Referral Center
People Overcoming Difficulties (Pod 7) was created in response to an alarming number of students dropping courses because they simply did not have support in meeting basic needs that contribute to overall student success. Healthcare, food insecurities, mental health resources, amongest others, are barriers that play key roles in preventing students from reaching their goals. A dedicated group of faculty, staff, and students believed if non-academic barriers could be lessened, students would have an increased chance at obtaining their personal and academic goals.
