Student of Concern
All members of the UNLV community, family, and friends can play an invaluable role in helping students who are in distress
Protocol for Incidents Involving Students of Concern
Student of Concern Report Form
UNLV is committed to the health and safety of all members of our community. To safeguard our community, the Distressed Student Taskforce has developed a comprehensive reporting system to share appropriate information so students can receive or stay connected to the academic support and student wellness services they need. This reporting system is one element of a safe and supportive campus community.
How to Help a Student of Concern Guidebook
This guidebook has been designed as a reference and resource for faculty and staff members and to support the training efforts of the university. It specifically provides faculty and staff with information about how to seek assistance and report behaviors of concern. Additional information is provided about managing difficult situations, behavioral signs that warrant concern, as well as resources for assisting students in accessing resources and services at UNLV. It is strongly recommended to schedule a “Student of Concern” training session for your department/unit/area.
UNLV Police Services
In situations, when a student is severely impaired or potentially dangerous, UNLV Police Services will need to be alerted by calling 895-3669. UNLV Police Services is also available to assist individual departments in formulating their own safety plans in accordance with their physical layout, degree, and nature of student contact and role within the University.
University Employee Assistance Program
It is important to recognize that dealing with disruptive or distressed students can be psychologically and emotionally difficult. Consequently, it can be very helpful to discuss these issues with a colleague or supervisor or seek professional stress debriefing assistance through the University’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP), Ceridian Life Works, at 877-234-5151. You may also contact the UNLV Benefits Office at 895-3504 if you have questions or require additional information about the Employee Assistance Program.
