									Students of Concern

for College Response
to Campus Incidents
       Clackamas Community College Offers Students and Staff
               a Safe Place to Teach, Learn and Work
                                      Who is a Student of Concern?

              1 Someone who is struggling with basic needs such as food, shelter safety
                or isolation.

              2. Someone who continually displays behaviors or communicates problems that create a barrier to
                 themselves or other students’ ability to be successful in the classroom or college environment.

              3. Someone who causes concern by sharing Information in an assignment or dialogue that displays
                 self destructive patterns (abuse, addiction, or manifesting suicide tendencies).

              4. Someone who is violent or threatening in either verbal, written or physical ways to
                 staff or students.

                                        Recommended Approach

1. Staff members initially work                           2. Staff member refers student               3. Plan of action
   directly with students to problem solve                  to their dept chair or director              is developed

                                          What if above steps don’t work?
