The purpose of the Student Resource Center is to enhance student access, engagement, achievement, retention, and completion by supporting our students comprehensively from the initial day of enrollment through degree completion and beyond.
Delaware County Community College students have demonstrated they possess academic, food, financial, transportation, mental health, family, legal and other personal insecurities. A survey given at the College in 2018 to over 1,000 students showed approximately 27% of students indicated that they had experienced food insecurities and 49% would utilize a food pantry if it was offered.
This data along with initiatives that have been addressing some of the other previously listed student insecurities for the past 4 years resulted in senior administrators, faculty, administrators, staff and students collaborating to establish The Student Resource Center during the Spring 2020 semester.
