Concerns About Students
For some students, the demands and pressures of their academic experience may be overwhelming and stressful. The emotional and behavioral consequences may appear in classrooms, residence halls or departmental offices. Faculty and staff may be in a position to identify students who require additional assistance and to refer students to appropriate resources. The information below is provided to help faculty and staff with their concerns about students.
When safety is an immediate concern because a student verbally or physically threatens to harm others or a student makes an active suicide threat, call 911 or the University Police at 404-413-3333.
When safety is not an immediate concern yet a student is disruptive as defined by the instructor, follow the Disruptive Student Conduct in the Classroom or Other Learning Environment Policy.
When safety is not an immediate concern yet a student threatens self harm or demonstrates bizarre or concerning behavior, please complete the referral form to get students to the appropriate resources.
When safety is not an immediate concern yet a student is very sad, highly anxious, lacks motivation or concentration, has experienced a personal or family hardship or emergency, or expresses a need for an Emergency Withdrawal from the university, complete the referral form.
