Responding to Emergency or Crisis Situations Involving Students

The Office of Student Life coordinates the university response in situations involving death, critical incidents, serious injury, family emergencies, or sudden illness of students. In serious student situations, the Office of Student Life may convene the Critical Incident Response Team (CIRT) to assess the situation and to coordinate an appropriate intervention.

The Office of Student Life phone number, 785-532-6432, is also answered after hours and can provide help and information to students, faculty, staff, parents, and the public. This number can also connect you to the Office of Student Life contact person who will respond in the case of a serious emergency or situation where a student’s family members would need to be contacted. As soon as you learn of an emergency situation (day or night), please call the K-State Police at 785-532-6412. In addition, you may call 785-532-6432 so that one of the following people can be contacted as soon as possible by the Office of Student Life after-hours answering service.
