ODU Cares is a focused effort by Old Dominion University to address issues that impact the success of its students. The ODU Cares Fund will provide assistance to students who are facing food insecurity, home insecurity as well as other financial hurdles.
Often times these issues make it very difficult for students to continue their education. This fund will help fund a centralized pantry in Webb Center that will provide students with grab and go food items, and other necessary personal hygiene products. Additional efforts will focus on providing micro grants to aid students impacted by short term emergencies.
