Meet Your Student Advocate
Ms. Millie Mendez
The goal of the Student Advocate is to provide students with guidance and support free of judgement and approached with an open mind and positive attitude. The Student Advocate serves as a sounding board and resource for students that may need assistance or advice with concerns or issues including academics, personal and or general life situations. Advocate Millie Mendez, provides neutral, confidential and independent guidance by listening, providing encouragement and connecting students with the appropriate university and community resources. The resources provided will be aligned to meet the student’s personal needs. Faculty and staff assisting students with academic or personal challenges also have access to these resources and are encouraged to contact the student advocate as needed.
It is important to note that student names or concerns are not shared without the consent of the student. The only exceptions to confidentiality is in the case of imminent risk of serious student harm or where mandated by law, and in situations of sexual misconduct/harassment matters where federal law (Title IX) requires reporting to the Office of Access and Equity.
