Distressed Student Protocol: 974-HELP
It can be overwhelming to experience a situation with a student in which you believe he/she needs a level of care or support that is out of your comfort zone or training. 974-HELP serves as a way for students, faculty, staff, and families to express their concerns and reach out for support for a student.
This program about 974-HELP includes information about how to recognize the signs of a distressed or struggling student, what happens when 974-HELP is called, the supports that are available to students, and the follow-up that occurs to keep students healthy and safe.
The Consent program explores the campus policy and definition of consent, as well as factors that impact the ability to give consent. Through interactive activities, students learn how to recognize when consent is present, when it is not, and what to do when consent may be unclear.Request a Consent Program
