The Office of Student Support and Accountability (OSSA) is the central place for College of Engineering students, parents, faculty, and staff to seek assistance in navigating the complex issues of campus life. This may include: receiving support, evaluating individual needs and reviewing options for problem solving, and learning about available resources for a student struggling with a challenge or unmet need. OSSA staff members provide developmentally appropriate assistance to individual students and student communities who are experiencing life situations that pose a barrier to taking full advantage of their Michigan experience. We assist students as they integrate the rich array of available resources to help problem solve concerns and enrich their student life.
The OSSA staff members possess an effective understanding of University policies, procedures, and community life and can work with individual students, student groups, parents, staff, and faculty to address conflicts, eliminate barriers impacting a student’s pursuit of educational and personal goals, and identify and connect with campus and community resources that promote restoration and success. Staff members work cooperatively with students to identify and plan strategies to address areas of concern or unmet needs and to affect problem resolution.
