The role of the COPE team is to facilitate programs and provide information on mental health topics that can impact the academic and social success and overall well-being of SUNY Oswego students. COPE members are committed to teaching skills that can help fellow students reduce potential for distressful life experiences (prevention) and to resolve stressful situations more quickly should they arise.
