Students of Concern Team: Who We Are

The Students of Concern (SOC) Team at Truman consists of representatives from Student Affairs, University Counseling Services, Student Health Center, Department of Public Safety, Office of Citizenship and Community Standards, Residence Life, and the Center for Academic Excellence.

The composition of the SOC was intentionally constructed so that members bring multidisciplinary perspectives regarding support for students experiencing mental, physical, spiritual, academic or financial distress.

This site is not monitored 24 hours a day; if this is an emergency, call 911.
