Student Care Network offers drop-in services

The Student Care Network drop-in and satellite services provide a quick and convenient way for students to consult privately and one-on-one with a staff member about a current concern, explore support options and establish connections with resources on the student’s schedule. 

Student Care Coordination offers Drop-In Care Coordination at SCC and across campus. Drop-In Care Coordination will be offered through Dec. 7, excluding Fall Break (Oct. 19–20) and the week of Thanksgiving (Nov. 20–24). Drop-In Care Coordination offers a way for students to meet quickly with a care coordinator to discuss any immediate needs, including planning for a successful semester, identifying and connecting with support resources, connecting with the University Counseling Center and taking a medical leave of absence. Drop-In Care Coordination meetings are not therapy or counseling. If you have an immediate or urgent concern that may be best addressed by a therapist, please use the Drop-in Consultation sessions and/or Urgent Care services offered by the University Counseling Center. 

The Center for Student Wellbeing offers several drop-in services at the CSW and across campus, including well-being and academic coaching, meditation, yoga and recovery support. Drop-in services will be offered through Dec. 7, excluding Fall Break (Oct. 19–20) and the week of Thanksgiving (Nov. 20–24). Through academic coaching, students can polish study skills and learn to manage their time to apply those skills effectively. Well-being coaching is a good fit for students who would like support around emotional well-being, stress management, life transitions, alcohol and other drug harm reduction, social support and personal health. 

The University Counseling Center offers UCC Drop-In Consultations, an outreach program that provides easy access to informal, confidential and free consultations with UCC providers. Drop-In Consultations will be available through Dec. 7, excluding Fall Break (Oct. 19–20) and the week of Thanksgiving (Nov. 20–24). The UCC offers in-person drop-in services at a number of locations across campus. A Drop-In Consultation is a good fit for students who: 

  • are not sure about counseling and wonder what it’s like to talk with a counselor 
  • are not interested in ongoing counseling but would like the perspective of a counselor 
  • have a specific problem and would like to talk it through with a counselor 
  • have a concern about a friend and want some thoughts about what to do 

The Student Health Insurance Plan offers drop-ins for questions about the Student Health Insurance Plan on Mondays and Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to noon in Student Care Coordination, Rand Hall Suite 305. You can email to schedule an appointment, and walk-ins are also accepted during drop-in hours. 

 Vanderbilt’s Reproductive Health and Parenting Resource Coordinator will be offering virtual drop-in hours on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., Sept. 6–Dec. 14, excluding Fall Break (Oct. 19–20) and the week of Thanksgiving (Nov. 20–24). The Reproductive Health and Parenting Resource Coordinator serves as the first point of contact for any individual seeking information, support, referrals and education around all stages of reproductive health, which includes pregnancy and parenting. 

Other campus partners offer drop-in services, including the Career Center, STEM Tutoring, Project Safe and the Writing Studio. To view all current drop-in opportunities, please visit the Student Care Network Satellite Services webpage.
