Identifying and responding to students who may pose a threat of harm to themselves or others forces administrators to walk a fine line between over- and under-response. In order to respond effectively\, campus administrators must draw on the best practices from the student development\, mental health\, campus safety\, and risk management fields while complying with legal and regulatory requirements.This webcast series tackles the toughest questions surrounding how you can support the best interest of students while mitigating risk for your institution through legally sound policies. Over the course of three sessions\, our expert instructors will help you think through the ways you can develop a comprehensive and integrated risk management approach to policy development that provides a thorough framework to more accurately identify and respond to students of concern.While each session has a specific focus\, the series will address:How applicable laws\, regulations\, and best practices can be reflected in your campus protocols.Policy intersections between behavioral intervention teams and other student conduct campus policies and practices.The intersection between mental health issues and the student conduct system\, with a focus on student behavior.Learning OutcomeAfter participating in this webcast\, you will be able to identify possible improvements to your conduct policy that reflect appropriate response to student behavior\, including providing accommodations for students with psychological disabilities.This session will investigate the intersection between mental health issues and the disciplinary or student conduct system\, with a focus on student behavior. Presenters will share appropriate legal issues\, policy considerations\, and best practices related to student conduct/judicial proceedings. They will examine current alternative practices that address the various needs of a diverse student body. Discussion will focus on changes or modifications to current disciplinary processes and practices to take into consideration the sometimes unique needs and interests of students with mental health disabilities. The relationship between the student conduct process and other campuses responses\, such as threat assessment and behavioral intervention teams\, will also be discussed.AgendaThe role of a student conduct system on campus: the intersection of student mental health and student conductLegal considerations in addressing student conduct: case law and the Office for Civil Rights (OCR)Reasonable accommodations and modifications to the student conduct process/systemChecklist for responding appropriately to student conduct-related issues involving students with mental health issuesSpeakersAnne LundquistDoctoral Associate and Ph.D. Candidate\, Western Michigan UniversityAnne has served as the dean of students at four liberal arts colleges.
