'Student of Concern' resources offered by Office of the Dean of Students

As Purdue approaches the middle of the semester, the Office of the Dean of Students wants to remind the campus community about resources available to assist in providing care to students.

Student of Concern Report: If at any point you are worried about a student, you can complete a Student of Concern Report at www.purdue.edu/odos and clicking “Report a Student of Concern.”

The most frequently reported concerns are:

* Personal events (loss of a loved one; ended relationship; financial loss).
* Excessive and extended absences.
* Stopped communication.
* Changes in behavior.

Student of Concern guides: This guide serves as an easy reference of resources available to students 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Over 10,000 of these guides have been distributed over the past two years. To request copies for your department, office or organization, click here

Student of Concern/Behavior Intervention Team presentation: This hour-long presentation will address concerning behavior; instructions 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. Presenters will allow time for questions and remain afterwards to discuss any specific concerns attendees may have. 

This presentation is provided monthly, but due to limited seating, registration is required. The online registration form provides the remaining three available dates and times, with the next date being Friday (Oct. 6).

If offices or departments would like to request an ODOS presentation or ODOS presence at a regularly scheduled staff meeting, presentation requests can be made by completing the request form here.

For more information, contact Steven Yeagley, associate dean of students - crisis management, at 765-494-1747 or yeagley@purdue.edu
