What is ECRT?

The Economic Crisis Response Team, or ECRT, is a group of staff, administrators, students and faculty from across campus working together to ensure students experiencing food or housing insecurity, or other immediate and unforeseen financial crises, are connected with short-term and long-term aid quickly and without stigmatization.

The team was created to coordinate already existing resources on campus and to collect information on off-campus agencies that provide different types of support to college students in need. We also seek out opportunities to provide access to these different types of support through awareness activities and partnering with others already doing outstanding service related to food or housing insecurity.
