UPEI is pleased to announce a program that will enhance its student support services. Through a partnership with Shepell-FGI, UPEI will now offer a Student Support Program (SSP) for all students. This program is similar to the Employee and Family Assistance Program offered to UPEI staff and faculty. Students will have access to many different professionals 24/7, 365 days a year, including counsellors, nutritionists, lawyers, financial experts and others. Students can receive support on a variety of topics including relationships, childcare, landlord/tenant issues, and health and financial issues as well. These services are available in over 200 different languages. The program will be available September 1. Representatives from Shepell-FGI will also be on campus September 9 and 10 to provide information to students regarding the new program.
