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 the Academic Success Center, Counseling and Psychological Services, Dean of Student Life Office, Department of Public Safety, Graduate School, International Student and Advising Services, INTO OSU, Office of Equal Opportunity & Access, Ombuds, Oregon State Police, Residential Education, Student Conduct and Community Standards, Student Health Services, and the Survivor Advocacy Resource Center.
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 SCT addresses concerns about student behavior that may be disruptive to the integrity of the learning environment and the greater campus community.
