Student of Concern & Behavior Intervention Team Presentation

When someone within or outside of the Purdue community has a concern for a student, completing a Student of Concern Report allows staff within the Office of the Dean of Students to provide outreach and assistance to the student.

This hour-long presentation is crafted to educate members of the Purdue community on indications a student may need additional support; guidance on how to report concerns; and information about what takes place after a report is submitted. Additionally, participants will learn about the Behavior Intervention Team. The final 10-15 minutes of the presentation will be used to answer questions, and presenters will remain afterward to discuss any specific concerns attendees may have.

All attendees will be provided with an electronic "Student of Concern Guide" for easy reference of resources available to students 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
