When Your Student Contacts You with an Issue

One of the most important ways parents and families can help their students in college is by encouraging them to solve their own problems, make their own decisions, etc. Please review the Stop, Drop, and Roll framework if your student contacts you with a problem, frustration, or a decision to be made.
