CAPS, FSAP Now Academic Affairs for Some Reason

In a letter to impacted units, senior leadership announced that CAPS and FSAP are moving to Academic Affairs

…yeah, we’re not too sure what’s going on here. Something about great opportunities for these health services offices to start doing research or something? And maybe they didn’t have access to marketing and technological services before? Or maybe this is just a land grab? No idea. Feel free to read the eight-paragraph letter to impacted units yourself and see if you can make any sense of it. For those of you who are curious, but not curious enough to read such a long update, we’ll try to capture the gist of it here:

Health & Wellness Services will move from Student Affairs to Strategic Resources and Support, which maybe didn’t exist before. But who can keep track?! FSAP will move from Human Resources to Health & Wellness Resources. But don’t worry, we’ll keep the two services separate. We’ll also keep the funding separate because CAPS will still be funded by student fees and, rest assured, we won’t use student fees to fund faculty and staff services. But it totally makes sense to make this structural change. But, also, we know change is hard. But maybe change is especially hard when it doesn’t make any sense and nobody knows it’s happening until it’s happening. But this definitely makes a lot of sense. 

Now imagine there are seven more paragraphs like that. Now you’re all caught up and ready to refer students to resources with confidence!
