JeffHELPer is a new program for faculty, staff, and employees designed to train and assist these individuals to become resources for students who may want to talk about either nonspecific academic issues or personal problems, but the issues do not seem to warrant professional counseling. JeffHELPers are not expected to be personal counselors for students, and each JeffHELPer will be provided training and a resource list to facilitate student referrals, when needed.
