Students of Concern

As a result of growing safety issues and concerns on college campuses, Oregon State University (OSU) developed a Student Care Team (SCT). The SCT addresses student behaviors that are disruptive and may include safety and/or mental health issues. The goal of the SCT is to promote the safety and health of students which, in turn, aids in the well-being of our overall OSU community. The SCT consists of a group of qualified and dedicated OSU professionals who collaborate together as they focus on:

  • Eliminating “fragmented care” and information
  • Providing a structured method for addressing student behaviors that impact the university community
  • Balancing the individual needs of the student and those of the greater campus community
  • Initiating appropriate intervention without resorting to punitive measures


The Student Care Team is comprised of representative from the Academic Success Center, Counseling and Psychological Services, Dean of Student Life Office, Department of Public Safety, Oregon State Police – OSU Station, Residential Education, Student Conduct and Community Standards, and Student Health Services.

As someone who works directly with students on a daily basis, OSU faculty and staff are in a unique position to interact with students both inside and outside of the classroom. The SCT addresses concerns about student behavior that may be disruptive to the integrity of the learning environment and the greater campus community.

The Student Care Team meets regularly and would be glad to consult with you. You may contact the SCT through the Office of the Dean of Student Life at (541) 737-8748, option #3 or deanofstudents@oregonstate.edu
