Faculty & Staff

Student Development is asking the university community for assistance in identifying students experiencing serious difficulties, who may be potentially threatening to the safety and security of themselves or others and/or potentially threatening to their personal and academic success.

To assist you in determining the level of distress the student is experiencing, here is the Student in Distress Flowchart. Take a few moments to determine the level of the concern before proceeding.

Students

Students are welcome to self-report if they are experiencing issues that are negatively impacting their personal and academic success. They can also report other students for whom they have similar concerns. USCB is here to help you and your fellow students.

Students can be referred to the 'Students of Concern' committee for further assessment and support services by filling out the Student of Concern Reporting Form.
