Student Navigators

Addressing Students' Basic Needs

At the root of student success is having basic needs met. Sometimes circumstances change quickly, and students find themselves in need of temporary help. Illinois State is ready to help students navigate a path to having their basic needs met.

Our program is a student-led, peer-to-peer model that helps students at Illinois State contending with economic hardship and basic needs crises. Our trained Student Navigators can help by identifying and connecting you to resources such as emergency aid, affordable food, housing, school supplies, technology, transportation, childcare, mental health care, and personal care items.

Get connected to campus and community resources that are specific to your needs.
