This project is assessing student needs and provision of those needs by Fontbonne University.

The goals of the community needs assessment are:

1. Identify barriers of the university to assist the needs of students.

2. Identify access of services for students.

3. Identify student satisfaction of services provided by the university.

The Student Affairs department of Fontbonne University does case management for attending students. Services provided by the student affairs department help to ensure the success of students. Students are most likely to be successful when their basic needs are met. Basic needs such as food, shelter, and water are essential for everyday living. Lack of basic needs in students’ lives could impede academic success. Without adequate housing and consistent access to food and water students’ ability to concentrate and perform in courses deteriorates. Non-completion of courses or failing grades can lead to dropping out of college.
