Who We Are

Campus Support & Intervention (CSI) is an office within Campus Wellbeing and Crisis Intervention. We are a team of professionals here to assist current students, faculty, and staff in navigating complex issues. Whether you are here seeking support for yourself or someone else, we are available to help you problem solve, understand options, and connect with resources. Please note that we are not an emergency resource and are not available 24/7. In case of an emergency, please contact the Department of Public Safety at 213-740-4321.

What We Do

CSI connects with members of the USC community when they need support in achieving their academic, professional, and/or personal goals. We can provide consultation, in person, by Zoom, or over the phone, to learn more about your individual situation so we can provide guidance and help you connect with relevant campus and community resources. Below are some of the ways we serve the USC community:

  • Resource referrals and recommendations

  • Professor notifications*

  • Trojans Care for Trojans (TC4T)

  • Critical incident response

  • DPS incident follow-up

  • Health Leave of Absence

  • Complex issues

  • Crisis as you define it

*Notifications are made on a case-by-case basis when a student is unable to make the notifications on their own behalf. Please consult with a staff member regarding these requests.
