Resource Collaborative for Students
The SCCE has established a Community Resource Collaborative (CRC) for Stockton Students without parental support (students who aged out of foster care, students who are homeless, or students who lived in informal kinship care). The Collaborative brings students together every two weeks to share off-campus resources and direct students to the available on-campus resources which will allow them to keep moving towards graduation.
The Collaborative will be facilitated by SCCE staff but students will take an active role in finding and sharing resources amongst themselves.
The goal of the Collaborative is to highlight the University's robust existing resources
and use the SCCE's community partners to maintain or increase Stockton's persistence
and retention rates.
Meetings will be held at 4:30 pm in Room F-206 on the following dates:
