The Landscape of Student Housing Insecurity and Homelessness: A Survey of Our Network

Identifies strengths and weaknesses and points to opportunities where campuses can build programming and services that are targeted toward addressing the needs of students facing housing insecurity and homelessness. Based on the information gathered, the Americorps VISTA network is engaging in work to offer campus programming for students who are likely to need support meeting their basic needs. More can be done by (1) resisting the stigma associated with homelessness, (2) more directly training faculty and staff to support students facing housing challenges, and (3) developing partnerships and programs to support students experiencing housing insecurity. The report details the development of a revised mapping tool and the results of a 50 campus analysis.
