Tips for Faculty & Staff with Concerns

  • Always keep safety in mind as you interact with a troubled student. If you feel that the student is a danger to himself/herself or others call 911 or University Police at 337-482-6449.
  • Don’t assume the student is trying to get attention or relief from responsibility.
  • Don’t promise confidentiality to a student.
  • Keep a written record, including times, dates, and interactions with the student, in case the situation escalates.
  • Know your boundaries. You do not need to serve as a counselor.
  • Offer to make the first call or walk the student to the Student Health Center (337-482-5464)/Counseling and Testing Center (337-482-6480).
