November 15, 2018 – Wildcats Rise Care and Resources Center opens Monday

To: Faculty and Staff
From: President Gayle Hutchinson

Our entire campus community is shaken from the impact of the Camp Fire, whether you were directly or indirectly impacted. On Monday, November 19, we will open the Wildcats Rise Care and Resources Center in the Bell Memorial Union to provide emotional support and information to anyone who is struggling after the fires.

The center is a one-stop shop for counseling, academic advising, employment advice, and other important services. You’ll find Wildcats who can answer your questions about financial assistance, leaves, benefits, payroll, and housing, and point to community resources for helping with insurance and other questions.

The center will open at 8:30 a.m. with refreshments and remarks from me at 9 a.m. Serving as a drop-in center, it is expected to be open until 5 p.m. and people can drop in at any time to access its services or gather as a community.

I hope you will consider arriving when it opens so you have time to reconnect with colleagues and friends as the Wildcat family reunites. I look forward to seeing you soon. Together, Wildcats Rise. Together, we will rebuild our community.
