The purpose of the Emotional and Physical Health Committee is to address the safety and well-being of all students and to promote a safe campus learning environment. The EPH investigates concerning behaviors, gathers further information from campus resources and works to develop a course of action that will best suit the student’s needs and those of the University community.
Under certain behavioral conditions, as outlined in the “Student Handbook”, students may be referred through the University Emotional and Physical Health (EPH) review process.
University members who encounter student behaviors that pose a health and/or safety threat to themselves or others, indicate an inability to cope psychologically with the demands of university life, or create a pattern of extreme or ongoing disruptionare encouraged to complete the Behavioral Report and forward it to: AVPSLS, Office of Student Life and Success, Deputy Hall.
Any member of University community may refer a student to the process using the EPH Referral Form, (may be accompanied by incident reports or other documentation).
University Conduct Officer (UCO) reviews referral documentation. If behavior meets criteria for review, UCO meets with student to explain the EPH Process and the student’s due process rights, assess threat & issues, and student’s willingness to voluntarily participate in intervention. In extreme or repeat situations, the student may be asked to meet with the EPH Review Board.
