The CINO Food Pantry was created by students in an effort to help reduce hunger and improve nutrition on campus. The idea for the CINO Food Pantry originated in a University 110 class in 2012. The need for the pantry was determined based on the percentage of CCU students who received financial aid and the number of juniors and seniors who lived off campus and struggled with having enough money to cover the average amount of rent each month and still have enough money to buy food or a meal plan. CINO Pantry is open to all students, faculty and staff. CINO Pantry is located in Lib Jackson Student Union A-215 and is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Student Empowerment and Advocacy is not therapy. The laws that apply to a confidential therapeutic relationship do not apply to all helping relationships. There may be instances when information needs to be shared with other campus partners to ensure the safety of the campus community. While confidentiality cannot be guaranteed, information will only be shared strictly on a need-to-know basis. For effective coordination of services, you may be asked to sign a release of information.
