Student at Risk Support

If you know a student that is experiencing personal difficulties, mental health issues, or is struggling academically, we encourage you to notify the Student at Risk Support (SARS) team. This team of professionals responds to concerns around mental and physical well-being, security and academic issues, and can help students find the appropriate supports on campus.

This is not an emergency service. In case of emergency, please call 911.
