The Team will discuss student referrals and reach a disposition. The Team will make recommendations and consider strategies to contain disruption toward others and/or the normal operations of the College. The Team may examine environmental causes for the behavior and might also find it beneficial to direct inquiries about the student toward faculty and staff. The Team considers appropriate referral resources on campus.
When necessary, the Team will schedule an appointment with the referred student. It is expected that a referred student attend this meeting. The purpose of the meeting is to review the referral with the student and to explore with the student causes for the referral and to discuss potential strategies. At the conclusion of the meeting the Team will provide the student with recommended strategies or appropriate referrals to campus resources.
Should a referred student choose not to attend the meeting with the Team; the Team will discuss how they will proceed in managing the referral. The nature of the referral will determine the next steps the Team will take. Next steps may include scheduling a second meeting with the student or sending the student recommended referrals via email. In situations where the referral is very concerning, a public safety officer may meet the student at a scheduled class or activity and escort the student to a designated location where Team members will be waiting to meet with the student.
