Basic Needs Syllabus Statement for Faculty

The following is a basic needs statement you may choose to include on your class syllabus:

For any student who has difficulty affording groceries, accessing sufficient food to eat every day, or who lacks a safe and stable place to live, and if you believe this may affect your performance in this course, you are urged to contact the Dean of Students office for support at 540-231-3787 or complete an interest form to participate in The Market at Virginia Tech.

The Dean of Students, through The Market at Virginia Tech, offers food options and other resources. There is also a Student Emergency Fund program. If you are comfortable in doing so, please notify your professor or departmental advisor of your situation. This will enable them to provide any resources they have access to.
