Beginning-of-Semester Reminder: Students of Concern Care Team Support
As we begin the semester, you may observe or interact with students in your courses, in group activities, or through other modes of communication who are struggling or may need extra support. We urge you to connect with students and remind them of the resources of the Students of Concern Care Team. Members of the Care Team are available to assist faculty, staff, and students by providing information, strategies, and techniques for working with students of concern on campus. When reports come in, our team reaches out to each student to offer support and connect them with someone from the Care Team they can communicate to if they need help.
The Care Team seeks to identify and provide support for students in distress who may threaten harm to themselves or others. Your help in providing notice of any students of concern is essential to keeping our campus community safe. Notify the Care Team whenever a student’s behavior gives reason for uncertainty about harm so that we can investigate the situation, develop a plan for action, and follow up with appropriate intervention.
To contact the Care Team, please complete an online report form.
If you wish to invite members of the team to meet with your department or office to discuss “red flag” warning signs, ways to report a concern, legal or FERPA issues, or how to respond when confronted by a student in distress, please e-mail Sarah M. Young, dean of students.
Please remember, if your concern is an emergency, please call the University Police Department for immediate response at (716) 878-6333.
