Tigers Care is a new campus wide effort to enhance, promote, and sustain a culture of caring and support at RIT. Tigers Care began as a collaboration of Student Affairs and student groups and is about reaching out to those who are facing challenges and directing them to helpful resources on campus.
The end of the academic year is often a stressful time for students. Please read below a list of resources (not inclusive of all the excellent resources available on our campus) that can be helpful for students who are having a difficult time.
