Student care

The Office of Rights, Compliance and Accountability (ORCA) recognizes that students may experience unique challenges or hardships while attending the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF); therefore, we strive to support students during unforeseen extenuating life events in order to achieve student success and maximize personal wellness. Students are supported and empowered by the ORCA through Student CARE services, such as the Student CARE Team.

Our Student CARE Team will respond to reports of students' well-being concerns (e.g., students facing health issues, unexpected emergencies, or life changes) – providing support and intervention to ensure students continue to feel safe, productive, and valued. This team regularly collaborates with staff, faculty, and is responsible for the UAF CARE Team.
