Abstract Body: Objectives: Identify unique student needs and systems issues that emerge from a mission driven, holistic admissions process and that impact the academic and professional growth of diverse learners. Describe an interdisciplinary model of student support designed to promote success and wellness of a diverse student body. Use cases to apply principles of interdisciplinary student support model and identify strengths and limitations of this model. At the University of California Davis School of Medicine (UCDSOM), the implementation of a mission driven holistic admissions process has significantly increased the diversity of the student body not only in the areas of race, ethnicity and gender, but also socioeconomic status, perspective and life experience. In addition to diversity, our student body brings unique and complex support needs that have challenged UCDSOM to develop a comprehensive, interdisciplinary model for student support. This approach brings together a Student Affairs Team (SAT) that includes the Office of Student Wellness, Office of Student Learning and Educational Resources, Office of Student and Resident Diversity, Career and Specialty Advising, Office of Curricular Support, and Student Support Services (e.g. financial aid, registrar). The Team meets bi-weekly to review systemic issues that impact student progress globally as well as individual student challenges with the goal of developing plans to maximize student success. This workshop will provide a brief overview of the range of student needs and system issues seen at UCDSOM since the implementation of a holistic mission driven admissions process. Each office will describe its role on the SAT and their contribution to this model of student support. Using case examples, participants will have the opportunity to identify student needs and apply the collaborative, interdisciplinary process through which the SAT examines student issues to develop plans for individual students to promote student success and well-being. Session participants will be encouraged to compare the UCDSOM approach to that used at their institution and reflect on strengths and limitations of this model. The goal is to promote and interactive dialogue about how student affairs can adapt to meet the needs of a changing student population and identify the skills needed to implement the model.
