Additional Support and Privacy
The Dean-on-Call will ensure the student’s privacy; this means that only those people who need to know certain information in order to assist will be given the student’s name and other limited information as necessary. In rare instances, the Dean-on-Call may learn information from a student that the University may be obligated to pursue, even against the student’s wishes.
In consultation with the student, the Dean-on-Call may notify the student’s Resident Heads, Area Dean of Students, friends, family, and/or other pertinent parties as applicable regarding the situation. In some occasions, the Dean-on-Call may determine that a situation is critical enough as to inform the student’s Area Dean of Students of a specific incident without consultation with the student.
