At K-State, we always want to be prepared for whatever may occur. This includes our views on crisis assistance. Whether it is a campus-wide crisis or a crisis personal for you, we want to be sure to take the necessary steps in order to minimize the effects. The Office of Student Life focuses on this on their website. Here you can find information on how the Office of Student Life can help, whether you are a student, parent, or staff member. There is a detailed list of who the Office of Student Life can contact, as well as other resources that may be able to offer assistance. Along with the Office of Student Life, there are many other resources on and off campus that can help with a crisis. Be sure to check out these possibilities as well.
If you are concerned about student, whether you are another student or faculty/staff member, please fill out the Student of Concern form or contact the Office of Student Life. This is for non-emergencies only.
