Additional Campus Resources
SID Form (Student in Difficulty) provides educators a means of communicating with others who need to know and (or) are in a position to help a student experiencing academic difficulty. Online forms are available in Self-Service Banner, under the “Faculty and Advisors” tab. Copies of the form are routed to the Registrar, and to the student’s advisor, her or his RD, and to an athletics coach if the student is a member of a sports team.
Care Teams are created on an as-needed basis and designed to meet the particular needs of a student experiencing emotional difficulties or disciplinary problems. These teams originate in various ways; sometimes through residence directors, the directors of other offices in Student Affairs or through counselors at the Engle Center. Educators can explore that option for a student by contacting the Director of the Engle Center, or any of the offices or personnel below.
In addition to the Engle Center, the following campus resources are also available to provide consultation to you and assistance for your student:
Disabilities Services provides screening and referral for testing of ADHD and learning disabilities, as well as assistance for students with other medical disabilities. Eligibility for accommodations is determined through this office. Coaching for students with ADHD or learning disabilities is available on a limited basis.
Campus Ministries: in addition to responsibility for Chapel, the staff seeks to offer support for spiritual formation through pastoral counseling and mentoring, connecting students with Life Groups in the dorms and helping students connect with local congregations.
Office of Multicultural Programs provides support to students from underrepresented racial/ethnic groups, both domestic and international, as well as children of missionaries or other families living abroad. While focused on the needs of these groups, the department seeks to provide opportunities for all students in areas related to cultural awareness and racial reconciliation.
Residence Directors / Resident Assistants provide oversight of residence hall and apartment life and develop programming to encourage a strong sense of community among students. They are often involved in mediation of roommate conflicts, are trained in listening skills and provide referrals for counseling. Residence Directors provide a 24 hour emergency on call service that can be accessed through dispatch in the Department of Safety.
The Office of Student Affairs provides oversight of all non-academic student disciplinary proceedings. It is the mission of the office to nurture personal growth through the disciplinary process and to maintain a college-wide atmosphere conducive to learning and academic excellence. Contact Doug Wood, Associate Dean of Students, (Ext 3200) for more information.
Department of Safety: In addition to vehicle and traffic control the office provides a 24 hour presence for emergencies involving the safety of students and employees.
The Engle Center also maintains a list of off-campus resources of local support agencies. Contact Dr. Lawlis at x 3210 for more information.
