Emergency situations are those where students need immediate help because of life-threatening or severe psychological difficulties. In all cases, the student might be in an unconscious or semi-conscious state and immediate action is required.
- Examples of life-threatening emergencies: all serious accidents, death, serious injury, unexpected hospitalization.
- Examples of psychological/psychiatric emergencies: alcohol or drug overdose, suicide attempts, homicidal threats or threats of physical harm.
If you are an on-campus emergency office, please contact our office if you would like to be granted access to the TIP Emergency Database.
We also provide language services to on-/off-campus agencies, local K-12 schools, government agencies, and non-profit community organizations in non-emergency situations.
- Services include but not limited to: translating documents, interpreting, and planning/running cultural workshops.
