Mid-term stress: Free training to help identify, assist at-risk students

Submitted by Dorinda Lambert

Counseling services, the SafeZone program and the office of student life are providing free online training to the campus community to enhance your skills with your students who may be struggling.

K-State faculty and staff who have completed the training have indicated that it was enjoyable, increased their confidence and enhanced their skill in approaching students in need. Preview at vimeo.com/35019671.

To access the main faculty/staff training module, which takes about 45 minutes, please click the following link and open your own account using the following “enrollment key.”

We encourage you to go through the at-risk training for faculty prior to using this next training.

You can help create a supportive campus for veteran students.

Our college community is becoming increasingly aware of the unique challenges facing our returning student veteran population and the negative impact these challenges may have on their health and academic performance.

To address this concern, we have adopted an online training simulation that will assist faculty and staff to better support our veteran students. In this 30-minute course, you will learn how to manage a class discussion around a veteran sensitive topic and help a student veteran who’s struggling academically in your class.

To take the course, please click the following link and open an account using the following “enrollment key.” You do need to enroll separately for this even if you had previously taken the at-risk training listed above.
