In the latest Health, Safety and Well-Being Update video, Ohio State President Kristina M. Johnson discussed student support available as the end of the spring semester approaches – and provided additional information on safety resources.
“Exams are underway, and I know you are working hard to finish strong. As a reminder, the university offers a range of resources for what can be a stressful time,” said Johnson, who encouraged students to check out support available through the Office of Student Life’s Counseling and Consultation Service and Student Advocacy Center.
The work of the Student Advocacy Center, for example, includes assisting students during times of emergency and helping those who qualify to access emergency funding.
“Please don’t hesitate to reach out, Buckeyes,” Johnson said. “There is also an online request for assistance.”
Additionally, Johnson introduced the “City of Ohio State” podcast from the Office of Administration and Planning, which houses the university’s public safety department among other services. The podcast’s first episode features Director of Public Safety Monica Moll, who discussed a number of safety efforts and resources, including the Community Crime Map.
The map, which was introduced last month, allows users to quickly view off-campus crime statistics from the Columbus Division of Police. The tool can also be customized to provide crime alerts.
