Faculty and staff play a key role in identifying and responding to distressed students. Faculty and staff are, most often, the “first responders” to come in contact with students in trouble. Responding to students in distress, however, can be confusing and overwhelming, especially in the absence of clear guidelines. Therefore, we have prepared this resource guide to assist you in responding to students in distress.
- Respond and act with care and diligence
- Act in the best interest of the student
- Locate the appropriate college and community resources
- Provide culturally sensitive services
In the event of an emergency: please contact security at extension 5-2246 from a campus phone, or 203-285-2246 from an outside line.
