Distressing Student Behavior

In your dealings with students, you may at some point notice behaviors that are concerning to you or others in the USF community. We rely on you to report anything that you find troubling or out of the ordinary as you are USF's Crisis Management and Behavioral Intervention Team's (CMBIT) best resource because you are familiar with the student.

If you believe there is an immediate threat, call Public Safety dispatch at 415-422-2911.

If there does not seem to be an immediate safety concern, but you are still worried about a student, please contact the Dean of Students at 415-422-5330 during business hours or Public Safety’s dispatch non-emergency number at 415-422-4201 after business hours.

Please refer to USF's Red Folder for more information.
