SOC Student Success

Meet your Student Success Interns

The Office of Student Life hosts graduate students who are attaining their master’s in social work. They are student interns working for Dr. Nicky Damania in the Office of Student Life. Their main mission is to help students to succeed by providing wrap-around services to college students by connecting them to public benefits, institution and community resources, and addressing non-academic barriers that may hinder a student from achieving academic success. They are part of the college’s response team and are mandatory reporters. They also are standing members of the Students of Concern (SOC) team who meet weekly with other BC Staff members to discuss issues that may affect a student’s well-being and self-efficacy such as fair and equal access to financial aid services, employment, disability, and health services.
