The Casework System is a service designed to provide assistance to a constituent at their request in their dealings with the College or Vassar Student Association.
Senators are charged with conducting casework as a part of their advocacy responsibilities. Casework serves as a service of mutual benefit, wherein a student can be provided the necessary support regarding an issue they may be facing and the Vassar Student Association can track issue areas and maintain records to strengthen wider advocacy efforts.
Please note that this form should not be used to submit general advocacy requests (ex. the AEO process is too difficult), but rather a to submit a specific issue you are having with the College or VSA (ex. I have emailed the AEO three times over the past four weeks and have not gotten a response).
Please note that Senators are prohibited from conducting casework on issues under the purview of the Academic Panel, Bias Incident Response Team, EOAA/Title IX, or Student Conduct (CECR). Additionally, Senators are prohibited from providing casework assistance on the basis of contributions or services to organizations in which the Senator has a financial interest. Casework services should also not be construed to be a system of emotional support, rather it is intended to be a resolving service that centers advocacy around College policy enforcements and hindrances of access or engagement.
