About the office

The Office of Resource and Support Coordination was established in April 2023 to coordinate the university's response and provide resources following a significant incident on campus. Its primary goal is to support the well-being of the MSU community during challenging times.
The ORSC facilitates connections to individualized on- and off-campus support services, such as counseling and mental health resources, academic assistance, financial resources, and updates on safety and security measures. The office also advocates for faculty, staff and students impacted by the violence of Feb. 13. For more information, please visit the Campus Support Resources page.
Yes, your privacy is important to us. The ORSC’s services are confidential and we prioritize your comfort and security when seeking support.
Trauma-informed communication protocols are designed to ensure that information is shared in a sensitive and supportive manner, especially with those directly impacted by traumatic events. They are crucial for promoting a safe and understanding environment within the campus community.
No, the office is temporary and was established in response to a specific incident. However, we remain dedicated to supporting the MSU community for as long as needed during the recovery and healing process.
