Student Welfare


Students working on assignment
The RISD Department of Student Welfare supports at-risk students and families with needs associated with food and housing insecurities.

The Department of Student Welfare provides support for McKinney-Vento families who are in temporary living situations. We provide food, supplies and clothing as well as other resources if needed.
