Students of Concern Committee

The Students of Concern Committee provides a confidential support system and early intervention for at-risk students. The committee receives referrals from the campus community about students for a number of reasons, including but not limited to academic, personal, financial, mental health or behavioral concerns.

Examples of concern include:

  • Claims that a student is going to harm themselves or others. If you have an immediate concern, please call the Office of Public Safety at 314.446.SAFE (7233).
  • A student's physical appearance is deteriorating.
  • A student is suffering from or dealing with the side effects of a serious illness.
  • There are concerns regarding a student’s mental or physical health, welfare or safety.

Once a report is submitted, the committee will assess the situation and follow up with the appropriate steps and interventions.

Submit a referral to the Students of Concern Committee.

Suicide Prevention Program

Health care and pharmacy professionals work directly with patients who may be at risk for suicide.

Education, research and training in suicide prevention is imperative to ensure health care professionals are aware of the warning signs that high-risk patients may exhibit.

Ask. Listen. Refer. is a statewide initiative that provides online suicide prevention training for campuses across the state of Missouri.

This program provides information about identifying those who may be at risk for suicide, warning signs, response tactics and local resources available.
