ODUCares is an extension of Student Ombudsperson Services (S.O.S.) and a part of the Division of Student Engagement & Enrollment Services (SEES). The Care Team was developed to provide a university-wide system of care and support for students who experience an unexpected crisis. The Care Team's role is to determine effective strategies for addressing concerns and connecting students with the appropriate resources.
The Christine Maria Student Emergency Grant Fund (CMEG) was established to assist in the retention and success of ODU students. Funding is available for currently enrolled students who require temporary financial support due to unforeseen circumstances and for which other resources have been exhausted.
