Care Team

The Care Team is focused on creating sustainable systems of support that are accessible, inclusive, and equitable so students can thrive as they work toward reaching their full potential.

Caring for our students is at the heart of our systems and policies. The Care Team consists of staff from across campus  who meet regularly to discuss student concerns and trends on campus. We support all students at Clark, and our Care Team can provide you with information about resources, support, and referrals!

Our staff in Care also work on addressing students basic needs through a variety of resources. We provide short-term, cash infusions to students in need through our Emergency Funding and meal swipes through Swipe Out Hunger while swipes are available.

Basic Needs Resources

We know you cannot be your best student when you are facing basic needs insecurity. We have some resources to help students who are facing financial insecurity or food insecurity. Further information is below, and ur staff are happy to help you access resources without judgement when you are in need .

Emergency Funding

We understand that unexpected financial emergencies arise. Our goal is to assist when possible, to address these financial concerns to prevent any further disruption to a student’s personal and academic success.

Currently enrolled and active Clark students are eligible to apply for limited emergency funding through the Division of Student Success for up to $500 per semester to assist with unforeseen, significant, and temporary emergency expenses related to specific areas.


Swipe Out Hunger is the leading national nonprofit committed to ending college student hunger. They work with colleges and universities, including Clark, to implement a range of anti-hunger programs across our 135+ campus network in 40 states.
