These behaviors may indicate an imminent safety risk to the student or the community and require assistance from campus and community responders:
Call LSU Police Department at 225-578-3231 and describe the problem. The LSU Police will respond as well as obtain assistance from other agencies as needed.
Moderate-risk behaviors are not usually life-threatening but may be a sign that the student’s coping skills are being challenged. Examples of moderate-risk behaviors include:
Document the behavior and refer the student or submit a concern to LSU Cares at the earliest opportunity. Students with these behaviors may be referred to Student Advocacy & Accountability. You may also make a referral by calling 225-578-4307.
Some students will have behaviors that interfere with their academic or personal success but are not likely to indicate a risk to life and safety. Examples of behaviors of concern might include:
Often you can help students exhibiting behaviors of concern by listening, giving basic advice, and making referrals to campus resources to help them. If the student needs more support than you can provide you can submit a concern to LSU Cares. You may also report students of concern to Mental Health Services at 225-578-6271. Some students may benefit by referral for academic assistance (i.e. advising, tutoring, or your associate dean).
