Student Resource Navigator

Our goal is to provide support and assistance to OCCC students to address non-academic issues that can prevent degree completion including but not limited to: food and housing insecurity, mental and emotional health, physical health, childcare issues, and flexible employment opportunities.

The Resource Navigator will coordinate a wide range of resources, assist students in evaluating and addressing their specific barriers, and ensure students are aware of all the available resources and benefits.

  • Refer students to internal (On Campus) resources
  • Refer students to external partners
  • Connect students to local, state, and federal benefits and resources
    • Determine eligibility
    • Assist students through the application process
    • Ensure students maximize all the available resources and benefits
    • Enable students to continue and complete their college education
