The Student Support working group is formed by students, lecturers and representatives from the Student Council and Unsettling, they focus on strengthening the position of the individual student in their personal well-being and resilience as a basic condition for studying through programming and additional support. Some initiatives include Confidants: A Listening Ear, Movement Sessions, Group Crits, Non-EU support, Philocafe, and others.
Confidants: A Listening Ear
What is a confidant?
Confidants actively approach all students to offer a listening ear. They meet students individually to check in, and, if necessary, refer students to the appropriate support persons at school (counsellor, psychologist, student affairs, etc.), or elsewhere. Confidants would provide general support and guidance regarding internal and external professionals, procedures and regulations, as well as complaint procedures. It is an additional independent role for supporting students, between the education departments and the student counsellor. Please reach out to the listed email address to get in touch with a confidant (if you haven’t already been in contact).
This is an initiative that provides further support and community for non-EU students, through gatherings, workshops, and individual support. This wiki is a collaboration between non-EU support and the Student Circle.
