Undergraduate Student Handbook

Student Support Network

 The SSN is a program designed to identify and support students who are struggling academically, socially, or personally. The SSN consists of a small team of faculty, staff, and administrators representing a variety of departments who are invested in the academic and personal success of George Fox University undergraduate students. This group meets regularly during the academic year to confidentially discuss appropriate and timely interventions for students in need of assistance or support.

In providing this support, struggling students will be encouraged to develop both their independence and their interdependence within the context of the campus community. The goal of the SSN is to encourage students' persistence to graduation and their active pursuit of God's call on their lives. To accomplish this important objective, the SSN assigns an appropriate person to follow up with the student and point him or her to the many resources that are available. Our hope is that some of the identified resources will help the student in resolving specific issues or concerns.  

For further information about the SSN, please visit ssn.georgefox.edu. If you know a student who may be experiencing some difficulties or struggles and needs help please fill out the intervention alert form and the SSN will follow up appropriately.
