Students of Concern Committee/case manager| April 9, 2013
People experiencing difficulty may show signs that they need help. Is someone you know exhibiting personality or behavioral changes such as a lack of interest or engagement with others or signs of aggression? If so, and you’re concerned about the student, the Students of Concern (SOC) Committee may be the right place for you to turn.
The SOC Committee can:
• help to coordinate the University response to students who demonstrate violence, threats to self or others, or are significantly disruptive.
• develop action plans intended to support student and community safety, prevent violence, support student development and maintain a campus environment conducive to learning.
• consult with faculty, staff and students involved in or affected by a student's behavior, and other individuals as appropriate.
The committee’s goal is to foster early identification of concerns about students. Early review of problematic situations can reduce the impact to a student and/or the classroom, social or living environment.
