Creating safe, thriving, supported, and successful communities.

Welcome to the Office of Campus Wellbeing and Crisis Intervention


Created in the summer of 2017, Campus Wellbeing and Crisis Intervention (CWCI) is a one stop shop serving the entire USC community. It addresses concerns and questions, and provides support, trouble-shooting, threat assessment, advocacy, education, referrals and crisis response and support. It is the place where people go to seek support for themselves and the community and where people receive answers and options to learn how to proceed to resolve a concern or situation or just to improve themselves or their teams. Through consultations, interventions, workshops and trainings, strategic planning, and policy and procedure reviews, CWCI helps members of the USC community develop better ways of engaging, enabling all to thrive.
