The Office of Student Care and Concern


Within the Division of Student Life, the Office of Student Care and Concern, led by Dr. Bruce Norquist the Dean of Student Care and Concern, is composed of four different departments, all providing care for students: Student Care and Concern (SCC), Counseling Services, Health Service, and the Student Resource Center.

SCC’s Mission

Every student who walks through Moody's doors requires a support team – including friends, family, and faculty – to make it to graduation and thrive along the way. We want to be a part of your team. The Office of Student Care and Concern desires you to have a rich and rewarding Moody experience during your time as a student. Our ultimate purpose is to care for you (and all our students) in a supportive way, which challenges you to grow.

SCC’s Values

In every interaction with students, we value the dignity of every individual that arises out of the Imago Dei which God has infused into all people. We seek to approach every student in a way that is Redemptive, Restorative, Individually-Focused, and Collectively-Aware.
