Also, the Office of the Campus Social Worker supports UCI students during situations and crises that may be impacting their personal and academic well-being, through short-term resource referral and long-term case management. Referrals can be made by UCI faculty or staff only. Generally, students may not self-refer. Campus Social Worker services are meant to complement and support current campus services offered to students.
