Resources and Advocacy

While our department is always here to help you with major/minor requirements and opportunities in Political Science, we also know that college is an extremely difficult time for students. Our advising office would like you all to know we are here to help you outside of the classroom as well, and pride ourselves on being student advocates.

Student Resources

Finding resources on campus can be overwhelming and difficult. To help students in bridging the gap between themselves and resources, our department has put together these sheets.

  • Mental Health: Taking care of your body and your mind is pivotal to being a safe and successful student. Here are the best on and off campus resources, as well as resources for BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and veteran students: Mental Health Resources
  • Food Insecurity: Food is expensive, and the U of M is a bit of a food desert. Here’s a list of nearby food shelves, food resources, and more! Food Insecurity Resources
  • Housing Insecurity: Whether you are struggling to make ends meet or need immediate shelter, this list of resources can help: Housing Resources
  • Academics: We want to support your academic success. If you need assistance, feel free to meet with our advising office or check out this list of academic resources: Academic Resources

The lists of resources above do not encompass every student need. Please see our comprehensive spreadsheet of student resources organized by need and community served.

As always feel free to reach out to if you need extra assistance or resources!
