Help Us Address Food Insecurity

Help Us Address Food Insecurity

Every student is important to us, and we want to make sure we are doing the best we can to address food insecurity that might exist among our students. Help us determine how to best serve those who may be experiencing food insecurity by completing a quick survey. The voluntary survey is anonymous and will only take about five minutes. Your participation is crucial, and the results will help us determine whether we should establish a student food pantry.

CSM Apps

Stay Connected with CSM Specific Apps

There are two apps that should be on the phones of every student: CSM Safe and CSM Mobile. 

CSM Safe is a product of the Public Safety and Preparedness department. It provides students, faculty, and staff with added safety on campus by sending important safety alerts and offering instant access to campus safety resources.

The app can get you to Public Safety and local law enforcement for the CSM area in case of an emergency or a non-emergency concern. You can report safety or security concerns right to Public Safety, and even let friends know you’re OK if there’s an emergency. The app also gives you instant access to notifications and instructions from Public Safety if there is an on-campus emergency, and has emergency plans that you can access even when you don’t have Wi-Fi or cellular data.

The CSM Mobile app is perfect for credit students who want to communicate with each other and keep up with what’s happening on campus. An events calendar keeps you informed and discussion boards keep you connected with clubs, activities, and fellow students.

Download both of our apps today so you can stay connected.
