Dean of Students offering QPR Suicide Prevention Gatekeeper Training, Student of Concern presentation

As the semester begins, the Office of the Dean of Students is announcing open presentations and resources available to assist in intervening and providing care to students. 

QPR Suicide Prevention Gatekeeper Training

Purdue joins more than 160 colleges and universities in providing QPR Suicide Prevention Gatekeeper Training to faculty, staff and students. QPR can be learned in the gatekeeper course in as little as two hours. Instructors will present, discuss and role-play scenarios until participants feel comfortable with the material. At the completion of the training, participants will obtain a certificate. Those who have already attended this training do not need to recertify.

Purdue has trained over 2,000 QPR Suicide Prevention gatekeepers -- many of whom have notified the Office of the Dean of Students about concerns they have for students. To become a Purdue QPR Suicide Prevention gatekeeper, register for an open QPR Gatekeeper training session here.

Student of Concern and Behavior Intervention Team presentation

When someone has a concern for a student, submitting a Student of Concern Report allows staff within the Office of the Dean of Students to provide outreach and assistance to the student. This hourlong 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 afterward to discuss any specific concerns attendees may have. Sign up for a presentation here.
