Besides promoting campus safety, the SBCT works to develop support plans to promote student health, well-being and successful academic experiences, said José-Luis Riera, interim dean of students.

The latest installment of the UD social media blog discusses the long journey leading to the implementation of a Weibo account.

“The SBCT offers a coordinated approach to helping students who are experiencing distress and are of concern to the University," Riera said.

Available on the SBCT website, “Recognizing and Helping Students in Distress: A Guide for Faculty and Staff” offers advice on recognizing and helping students in distress and steps to take, including talking to one's supervisor or department chair or calling the Office of the Dean of Students.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to inform the SBCT or the Office of the Dean of Students about anyone who has engaged in threatening behaviors or done something that has raised serious concern about their well-being, stability or potential for violence or suicide.

To contact the SBCT, call the Office of the Dean of Students at 302-831-8939 or email sbct-contact@udel.edu.

In emergency situations, members of the UD community should call Campus and Public Safety at 302-831-2222 or 911.
