Personal Support

Stress Management Resources

Feeling overwhelmed and stressed out? We understand that being a student can add up to a lot, especially when combined with your work, family, and personal life. Day-to-day demands can quickly take their toll. With that in mind, we want to help support you.  As a student in the MSITM program, you will have access to a wealth of resources related to creating a productive environment for studying, strategies to develop a solid support network, and finding ways to de-stress and re-center as you prepare to take on your next steps!

Time Management Resources

All MSITM students have access to various resources to help in managing and being productive with your time. The Student Resource Lounge includes information and resources on calculating your time, setting goals and priorities, and brainstorming ways to get the most out of your time. You are also welcome to map out your schedule using the interactive Time Management Calculator. This tool will help estimate how much time you should plan to dedicate to coursework each week.

Self-Care Resources

Self-Care is all about being deliberate in taking time for yourself. It is essential to care for the betterment of your mind, body, and overall well-being.  Self-Care is not about being selfish, but instead about replenishing and refreshing your own wellness in different ways. Our team of Student Success Coaches believes in the importance of taking care of oneself.  We have compiled a list of strategies and resources to assist you in finding ways to be your best self and productively take on the challenges.

Counseling Centers

As an online student, you may have access to services offered to collaborative program students through your home campus counseling center. Your Success Coach is happy to help connect you with your home campus counseling center for information on available services.  If you would like additional resources to connect with counseling services based on your location, please contact your student success coach.

Accessibility

Students with documented disabilities have the right to request information and necessary accommodations from their University, as stipulated within Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. Students interested in requesting academic accommodations must contact the Accessibility Services office at their home campus to begin the application process. The student services team is happy to serve as a liaison in connecting students to their home campus resources.

Blake Bishop

Why I chose a career in student affairs:

The power of education is immeasurable. I love learning and I love assisting other people learn. That combination lead me to my career in student affairs. Adult learners typically have a vastly different experience than their “straight-out-of-high-school” peers. It gives me pleasure assisting learners of any age on their educational journey. As with any journey, the goal of a degree rarely is straightforward or easy. I enjoy guiding students during their tumultuous times, and celebrating with them when they’ve overcome their obstacles.
