The Students of Concern (SOC) Team depends on referrals from the community — students, faculty, staff, and the Kirksville community to maintain a safe environment to support the educational needs of all Truman students. Behaviors do not necessarily have to be law violations to be worrisome. In addition to illegal conduct such as threats, assault and harassment, SOC may also evaluate changing circumstances or behaviors that may singularly or in combination generate concern. The Students of Concern Team evaluates all referrals seriously, though not all behaviors warrant further case management at that time.
The SOC Team meets on a weekly basis to discuss these referrals, then creates courses of action for each student that includes the best supportive, but least intrusive action for intervention.
