Occasionally a parent, friend, colleague or instructor who is concerned about a student's well-being asks the Dean of Students office to look into the welfare of a student. If you have reason to be concerned about the imminent health and safety of a student, please call the appropriate police department:
University Police Department (on campus students)
San Luis Obispo Police Department (off campus students)
The Dean of Students Office Dean On Call Program provides faculty and staff with a 24/7 contact to assist with urgent concerns, or emergency and crisis situations impacting the student community.
The Dean of Students office can attempt to contact the student via their University email address, and/or contact the student by phone. The Dean of Students office will use its discretion to determine appropriate outreach to the student.
Please recognize our responsibility for student privacy and understand we will use our discretion to appropriately contact the student. If you have questions please contact us and we will determine the best course of action given the circumstances.
