The Students of Concern Team (SOCT) is a campus resource dedicated to assisting students who may be in distress or experiencing challenging or difficult life circumstances. The SOCT also provides consultation and intervention when students exhibit aggressive, concerning or disruptive behaviors. The primary focus of the team is to take a proactive approach in identifying students who are struggling and provide early intervention, resources, and referrals, both on campus and in the community.
The SOCT receives information from concerned parties regarding students who may be exhibiting worrisome, disturbing, or disruptive behaviors. A case manager may gather additional information from the concerned party, faculty members, family and the student to determine the next course of action. This information may then be presented to the SOCT and reviewed for further recommendations.
The SOCT is a multi-disciplinary campus committee and includes representatives from the following offices: Dean of Students, Office of Student Conduct, Residence Life, University Police, Disability Services, Counseling Center, and Student Support & Case Management. Consultants are included if their participation will assist the team. Additional consultants include Legal Counsel, Disability Services, Athletics, International Student and Scholar Services, Veterans Services, Academic Advisors, and others from the campus community.
Student Support and Case Management Services includes two case managers who act as members of the SOCT and reach out to students, offering assistance with referrals to campus and community resources, and assisting in the development of an action plan with the student. The goal is to assist the student, avert more serious difficulties, and ensure the safety of both the student and the CU community.
