We provide a centralized collection of concerns about a student in distress who may potentially harm themselves or others.
Stress is normal for college students. While most students cope successfully with college demands, the pressures can become unmanageable and overwhelming for others. Distinct changes in appearance, attitude or behavior are often evidence that a student is in distress. Early detection and successful referral are important components of student assistance.
What we do
D'Youville's Student of Concern Committee provides a centralized collection of concerns from faculty, staff, and other students regarding student distress and potential harm to self or others. We're available to confidentially review, case by case, these situations and provide guidance, consultation, action plans and referrals. We hope that through this we can intervene early and provide support for the campus community. We also coordinate follow-up actions (counseling, judicial consequences, disability services, hospitalization, etc.)
Who we are:
Our committee includes representatives from these departments
- Academic Advisement
