Saluki Cares

Main Content

Your overall well-being, experience, and success as a student here at SIU is important to us, and we want to help you get the care, referrals, and answers you seek.

Saluki Cares facilitates and coordinates a University-wide program of care and support for students in distress. By working closely with faculty, staff, students and their families, SIU Carbondale displays a culture of caring by demonstrating to our students and families that they are an important part of the community.

Saluki Cares is an early alert initiative composed of professionals from different areas of campus life who work with students on a regular basis: Academic units, Dean of Students, New Student Programs, Center for International Education, University Housing, University College, Wellness Center, and others. Referrals are made from faculty, staff, family members, peers, or by the student him/herself.

Saluki Cares also provides resources and facts for Parents, Faculty and Staff.
