Response Protocol, Distressed and Distressing Students

If you find yourself confronted with a distressed or distressing student, whether it be a mentee, student in your course, student employee, etc., the response protocol linked below may assist you in determining the appropriate steps to take to support the student.

If you are unsure of how to assist a student, submit an Office of Student Support and Judicial Affairs (OSSJA) Student Support Referral using the link below:

Once a referral is made, the student will be assigned an OSSJA Case Manager who will reach out to the student and connect them with resources as appropriate. The case managers can request welfare checks be done on students to ensure their safety.
