You Are The First Contact

Student Affairs professionals, professors, and other staff members are often the first point of contact for struggling students.


Aggressive, physical behavior requiring assistance and/or after-hours help.


If a student is exhibiting aggressive behavior, or you perceive a threat of violence or other unlawful behavior, call EKU PD immediately. 

EKU PD patrol officers and dispatchers are on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  In case of an EMERGENCY, call 911.


Students who exhibit symptoms of illnesses that prevent them from participating in class.

Serious emotional behavior that prevents a student from conducting day-to-day activities.

Concerns about troubled or troubling behavior.


The goal of the Student Assistance and Intervention Team (SAIT) is to respond to reports of students who appear to be troubled or troubling, and intervene before the student's behavior reaches a crisis level.  The SAIT relies on all members of the campus community to report behaviors that are concerning.  The SAIT's focus is on students whose behaviors may cause alarm or who seem threatening to themselves or to other members of the campus community.  The SAIT has been developed as a tool for use by the EKU community in an effort to provide support and assistance to students who exhibit behavior that is unusual, potentially threatening in any way, troubling or concerning, or disruptive to the University environment.

Concerns about the performance of a student who is receiving accommodations or concerns regarding the presence of a physical, learning, or cognitive disability.


If a student is experiencing barriers or their ability to perform academically or communicate is negatively impacted by an accommodated or undocumented disability, contact the Center for Student Accessibility about modifications and supports for which the student may be eligible.

The CSA serves students with visual and hearing loss, learning disabilities, AD/HD, Aspergers, acquired head injuries, psychological diagnoses, chronic illness, mobility impairments, and temporary disabilities.


Concerns about possible sexual or dating violence involving a student.


If you suspect a student, female or male, has been a victim of sexual assault, sexual harassment, or domestic/dating violence, direct the student to GreenDot@EKU.  Please also report your concerns to the Title IX Coordinator, 622-8020.

If the situation is an emergency, call EKU Police at 622-1111.
