Faculty Toolkit

At the University of West Georgia, we have an array of tools to help our students troubleshoot, deal with crises, and be successful. This page empowers faculty to quickly and easily refer students to the proper resource(s) for common topics. Click on the category that best fits the nature of the concern. Use the Topic listing to find the relevant issue. The Resource column contains a link and/or an active email address to get the student the needed help, and the Responsible Department(s) section lists which area or areas provide the service.
