Student of Concern (SOC) Team
The Students of Concern (SOC) Team consists of Student Affairs and Academic Affairs professional staff members whose focus is to support students in attaining personal and academic success at Truman State University and to maintain a safe and productive educational environment for the Truman Community.
The goal of the Students of Concern is to obtain as much information as possible to guide our screening, assessment, and intervention strategies.
Our strategies are developmental in nature and are intended to assist the student in gaining greater responsibility, a sense of connection to the community, an understanding of balancing individual needs with the responsibilities of living within a community, and the skills and strategies necessary for personal growth, academic success, and persistence to graduation.
This site is not monitored 24 hours a day; if this is an emergency, call 911.
