Family Toolkit for Support During Remote Learning
We continue to offer students the opportunity to connect with members of Counseling Services.  More information
Dear Assumption Parents and Families,

As is the Assumption way, many on campus have come together to provide resources to support students and parents in the Assumption family. Though the campus is physically closed, offices remain open virtually in order to provide students with the necessary resources, such as counseling and tutoring, to ensure their academic and personal success during this period of remote learning. We would like to share with you a reference list of some resources developed over the past weeks to support your son or daughter. The staff and faculty at Assumption are committed to showing students and parents that we are #HoundsStrongerTogether .

Academic Support Center
  • If your student is in need of academic support during this period of remote learning, the Academic Support Center (ASC) continues to provide tutoring and other forms of support for students.
  • Suggest your student book an appointment with the ASC today.

CDIC Services and Resources
  • Drop-in appointments are available to students Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. via Zoom.  Students can “drop-in” and virtually meet with a staff member to discuss topics including resumes, cover letters, job/internship searches, post-graduate plans, and much more. 
  • Students can also make appointments to speak with CDIC staff via Zoom Monday to Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Students in any major can remotely meet with staff to discuss interview preparation/mock interviews, internship/job/postgraduate service, graduate school search, resume reviews, choosing a major/minor, exploring career paths, LinkedIn, internship/job offer questions and more.  Students can make an appointment here
  • Assumption's recruiting website, Handshake, is available to students 24/7. With more than 7,500 job and internship opportunities currently available, students can search and apply for positions while at home. 
  • Through the office’s website, CDIC Edge, students have access to a number of helpful resources including how-to videos, blogs, sample resume/cover letters, and much more.
  • If your student has any questions, please have him/her contact the CDIC.

Student Accessibility Services 
  • If your student is registered with Student Accessibility Services (SAS) and you believe that the switch to remote learning is creating a barrier to learning or accessing the curriculum, please let SAS know. The office is currently reviewing students’ accommodations and updating in accordance with the new remote format. 
  • If your student has a disability and is not yet registered with SAS, please encourage him or her to complete this form. SAS will reach out to your son or daughter to offer its assistance.
