Coming to the Aid of Crisis Aid

Presenter: Dr. Frank Kusch, University of Saskatchewan


Dr. Kusch is the Awards Development Liaison and the Crisis Aid Administrator at Student Finance and Awards, University of Saskatchewan, positions he has held since 2008. Kusch also has extensive experience in front-line student services, helping to launch the first cross-trained service hub that began at the U of S in 2003.

Session Description

From its origin as an emergency student loan program in the 1960s, we’ve broadened uSask’s crisis aid program to respond to the needs of today’s student body. We’ll discuss the growing pains; the challenges of helping students balance needs with wants, means with expectations, responsibilities with entitlements, and obligations with optics; and aligning finite resources with current and emerging university strategic directions. Come to listen and to share your successes, challenges, and best practices.
