The Early Intervention Team is a faculty and staff-led entity, with consultation from Counseling and Psychological Services, the Student Wellness Center, the Institute for Health and Human Services , the Learning Assistance Program, the University College Academic Advising and Orientation Center and a number of other units and campus personnel. The team’s main function is to meet with students who are showing signs of difficulty with university life and who have been referred by faculty or staff. Students may make referrals through a faculty member. The meetings with referred students are non-disciplinary and are intended to offer support and connect students with resources that can assist them to become healthier and more productive members of the community.
The Early Intervention Team is not intended to substitute for faculty and staff conversations with students or to take the place of referrals to the Counseling Center. Rather, when relevant, it is hoped that faculty and staff, contacting the Early Intervention Team will simultaneously encourage students to visit the Counseling Center or that the Early Intervention Team will be used as an additional resource.
