A Caring Campus - #wallacestatecaresWSCC Cares

Wallace State Community College became one of 20 community colleges across the U.S. designated as a ‘Caring Campus' by the Institute for Evidence-Based Change when it was selected for the initiative in 2020. The Caring Campus Initiative represents an ongoing commitment to connect with, and support, students to help them reach their educational goals with care and includes everything from the way students are greeted on campus to the services the College provides.

As a result of Wallace State's work in this area, the College has opened a food pantry to address hunger among students, made free mental health services available to students on campus, established a center for career and workforce development, including a work wardrobe where students can find clothes for interviewing, implemented success advising, established a Veteran’s meeting area and a mother's lounge, and worked with the Wallace State Future Foundation to make emergency funds available for essential needs like transportation, among other services.
