Mental Health Disturbances Disposition The Department of Housing and Residence Life is gravely concerned with any situation wherein a student’s state of psychological imbalance or poor mental health leads to either acute risk or actual disruption of the living and learning environment of the residence halls/RAMS Commons, or creates undue and continuing stress or danger for either that student and/or members of the residential living community. Examples of such situations are suicide attempts; grossly distorted behavior caused by drug ingestion, or demonstrated episodes of acute anxiety or other types of mentally aberrant behavior. Should appropriate University staff to have caused disruption of the student’s living environment assess a student’s behavior, or to pose imminent possibility of such disruption, disposition of that case will be considered on its own merits. Possible disposition may include, but is not limited to any or all combinations of the following requirements: referral for professional mental health evaluation, remediation, therapy, imposition of sanctions or limits designed to protect the individual or the residential community, voluntary or involuntary withdrawal from the University (including University housing) for either a specified or unspecified period of time, or involuntary withdrawal from the University (including University housing) for either a specified or unspecified period of time. Final disposition of the matter will be determined by the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, in consultation with the appropriate counselors or other mental health professionals.
