Students in Distress
In recent years, faculty, staff, students, medical professionals and parents have been continually contacting campus administrators with concerns regarding students’ emotional well-being and safety. This website is designed to give the campus community a measure of guidance and assistance in dealing with those concerns.
When a student is at-risk and/or in crisis, responding to the student's needs and providing appropriate referrals can prevent an escalation of the situation and help keep everyone safe. If you observe behavior that is concerning, please take action to get help for the student. Included below are resources that can be helpful in providing critical assistance to students who need it.
