Recent campus tragedies involving students with psychological disabilities highlight the need for campuses to be prepared to anticipate and respond to student risk and threats. Identifying and responding to students who may pose a threat of harm to themselves or others forces administrators to walk a fine line between over- and under-response. In order to respond effectively, campus administrators must draw on the best practices from the student development, mental health, campus safety, and risk management fields while complying with legal and regulatory requirements.

This webcast series tackles the toughest questions surrounding how you can support the best interest of students while mitigating risk for your institution through legally sound policies. Over the course of three sessions, our expert instructors will help you think through the ways you can develop a comprehensive and integrated risk management approach to policy development that provides a thorough framework to more accurately identify and respond to students of concern.

While each session has a specific focus, the series will address:

* How applicable laws, regulations, and best practices can be reflected in your campus protocols.
* Policy intersections between behavioral intervention teams and other student conduct campus policies and practices.
* The intersection between mental health issues and the student conduct system, with a focus on student behavior.

You may register for all three of the sessions, or just those you find most applicable to your campus. Make the most of this content by inviting your whole team, including your campus legal counsel.


Senior and mid-level student affairs administrators, academic advising administrators, student health center staff, residence life staff, academic deans, campus legal counsel, case managers, student conduct officers, campus safety and security personnel, risk managers, and those who work with students with disabilities will learn how to examine campus policies in light of the intersection of risk, legal liability, and student safety.
