New BPT Basic Needs Website Provides Resources on Day-to-day Needs
SUNY Brockport’s BPT Basic Needs website helps destigmatize student hunger and housing insecurity to encourage students to reach out for help.
This webpage is one way to make information about food resources, emergency housing, financial resources, and clothing options readily available for Brockport students. Basic needs are the essential resources that impact one’s physical and mental health, academic performance, and overall well-being, including but not limited to access to nutritious food, stable housing, healthcare, mental health services, and financial sustainability.
BPT Basic Needs Objectives are to:
- Reduce barriers that may prevent students from connecting to resources,
- Cultivate a campus-wide referral network, and
- Explore resources and support services to meet students’ basic needs.
For feedback and suggestions on this newly launched webpage please contact Karen Logsdon.
