As someone who works directly with students on a daily basis, OSU faculty and staff are in a unique position to interact with students both inside and outside of the classroom. The Student Care Team addresses concerns about student behavior that may be distressing or disruptive to the integrity of the learning environment and the greater campus community.

If you are concerned for a student, the Office of Student Care would be glad to consult with you. Please contact us at (541) 737-8748 or through the Student Care Inquiry Form.

As a result of growing safety issues and concerns on college campuses, Oregon State University developed a Student Care Team (SCT).  The SCT addresses student behaviors that are indicative of crisis and elevated concern. The goal of the SCT is to promote the safety and health of students which, in turn, aids in the well-being of our overall OSU community. The SCT consists of a group of qualified and dedicated OSU professionals who collaborate together as they focus on:

  • Eliminating fragmented care and information

  • Providing a structured method for addressing student needs and behaviors that impact the university community

  • Balancing the individual needs of the student and those of the greater campus community

  • Initiating appropriate intervention and resource connections

The Student Care Team is comprised of representatives from:

  • Academic Advising
  • Counseling & Psychological Services
  • Dean of Students
  • Department of Public Safety
  • Disability Access Services
  • Graduate School
  • Office of Equal Opportunity & Access
  • Office of International Services
  • Ombudsman
  • Oregon State Police
  • Residential Education, University Housing and Dining
  • Student Care
  • Student Conduct & Community Standards
  • Student Health Services
  • Survivor Advocacy & Resource Center

Faculty and staff may be the first to notice a student is struggling and may be in the best position to reach out with care and concern. The Care Folder is intended to provide you with resources and referral information for supporting distressed or disruptive students. Access the Care Folder and other relevant resources here
