Students can encounter a great deal of stress during the course of their academic experience. While most students cope successfully with the challenges that these years bring, an increasing number of students find the various pressures of life unmanageable or unbearable. As individuals who work closely with students, you may encounter these distressed students in your offices or classrooms. The Division of Student Affairs, the Division of Academic Affairs, the University Police Department, Employee Assistance Services Staff, and members of the FSU Student Situation Resolution Team have developed a FSU Faculty and Staff Information Guide (Red Folder) to use when assisting distressed students or when dealing with a person with a weapon. This information includes basic guidelines but cannot address every situation: therefore, in the event you believe you, the person(s) involved, or anyone else is at risk due to another person's behavior, you should call the Florida State University Police at 644.1234 or 911.
