Faculty & Staff

Recognizing Concerns and Responding Appropriately

Because faculty and staff members are often the first to recognize a student experiencing distress, we have established several resources to help you confidently identify and respond to these situations. Working together, we can help students develop lifelong skills in support of good mental and physical health.
