  • Assisting students who are considering withdrawing from the university prior to the end of the semester. 
  • Notifying faculty of extended absences from class when a student is unable to attend due to extenuating circumstances and will be out more than two days.
    • Such notifications are sent as a convenience for the student, but do not excuse the student's absence. It is the responsibility of the student to contact each professor upon their return regarding the professor's policy for missed classes, assignments, etc.
  • Consulting with faculty, staff and students regarding distressed and disruptive students; referrals to appropriate resources.
