Students of Concern Team: Our Mission

The Students of Concern 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.

Our Goal

The goal of the SOC team is to obtain as much information as possible to guide our screening, assessment, and intervention strategies.

Our 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.
