As we begin a new year and new semester, it is important to remember that faculty and staff play a vital role in supporting the health and well-being of students. Students often turn to trusted faculty, advisors, coaches, and mentors for informal advice and support throughout their college experience. This guide, created by the Counseling Center, is designed to help faculty and staff:

  • Become familiar with signs that indicate a student is having difficulties of a psychological nature
  • Learn how to respond effectively when you notice signs of distress or a student approaches you with concerns
  • Understand the steps for making an effective referral to the Counseling Center
  • Identify the resources available to help support you in your role
