Students of Concern Care Team Is Available to Meet with Campus Departments and Offices
Members of the Students of Concern Care Team are available to provide information during meetings or gatherings of faculty and staff members and share strategies and techniques for working with students of concern on campus. The team can be available to attend chairs' meetings, departmental meetings, office gatherings, or other groups as requested.
The Care Team is a group of Buffalo State faculty and staff members who seek to identify and provide support for students in distress who may threaten harm to themselves or others. Your help in providing notice of any students of concern is essential to keeping our campus community safe. Whenever a student’s behavior gives reason for uneasiness, the team is available to assist by investigating the situation, developing a plan for action, and following up with the student’s progress.
Information about the Students of Concern Care Team, including an online reporting form, can be found at www.buffalostate.edu/deanofstudents/x618.xml. Questions about the operation of the team should be addressed to Charles B. Kenyon, associate vice president and dean of students, ext. 4618.
If you wish to invite members of the team to meet with your department or office to discuss “red flag” warning signs, ways to report a concern, legal or FERPA issues, or how to respond when confronted by a student in distress, please contact Amy Rosen-Brand, associate director of disability services, ext. 4500.
