ASUU Student Resources and Programs

The purpose of the Student Resources Board is to be a supporter and an outlet for students in need.  We as a board provide resource programs, contact information, and student-to-student consultation for those in need.  We work to put on the It’s On Us Campaign for the University and help bring awareness about sexual assault on college campuses.  During our campaign, we educate students about bystander intervention and sexual assault prevention.

The Student Resources Board advocates for all students in need of unbiased assistance, including: legal referrals, emergency loans, University of Utah academic and behavioral issues, sexual violence, intimate partner violence, renter’s issues, food insecurity, and miscellaneous advice. Providing a safe and private environment for all students seeking resources, student advocates will work to solve problems in-house and connect students with organizations in order to allow them to make the University of Utah a more conducive educational environment.

The board is staffed entirely by informed and trained student advocates who listen to students’ concerns and inform them of their rights. Our advocates can direct students to a community organization or legal counsel for further assistance as needed. Call 801-581-2788 to schedule an appointment.
