UT Tyler Establishes Student Concerns Committee
November 18, 2009
The UT Tyler University Student Concerns Committee provides an administrative venue that is proactive in assessment, consultation and support regarding students who have elicited a concern or risk to themselves or to others on campus, David Hill, residential life and judicial affairs director, announced.
The goal of the committee is to reduce crisis situations that negatively impact students and the general UT Tyler community.
The SCC will advise involved parties related to crisis management efforts through consultation, referrals and coordination. The scope of the team is campus wide, with a focus on information gathering for at-risk individuals or situations.
“The committee can provide a course of action for faculty or staff to follow regarding a concerning issue, or the committee may refer the issue to student services, university police or the university’s disciplinary process,” Hill added.
Persons concerned about the behavior of a student, may electronically report information to the Student Concerns Committee by following this link, https://www.uttyler.edu/utsforms/incident_report.html
