Assessment Description
Student affairs professionals encounter a wide variety of situations where a student is in crisis. Not only will the professional navigate the crisis, but he or she will also need to mentor student leaders associated with the student in crisis. Guiding student leaders’ responses, the professional must consider the overall safety and confidentiality of the student in crisis, while also protecting the larger university community.
Create a 7-10 slide digital presentation for newly hired student affairs professionals to inform them about protection, safety, and confidentiality considerations in common crises.
Include the following:
Explain why a student affairs professional plays a key role when intervening during a student crisis.
An overview of at least four different categories of student crisis situations that are common on a college campus.
Describe protocols for student leaders to aid students in crisis, considering both safety and confidentiality.
Analyze considerations for protecting the larger educational community when a student is in crisis.
Title slide, reference slide, and presenter’s notes.
Support your presentation with 3-5 scholarly resources.
The digital presentation should include graphics that are relevant to the content, visually appealing, and use space appropriately.
