All members of the UNM community can play an invaluable role in helping students who are in distress. The Behavioral Assessment and Response Committee is here to assist you.
With representatives from the Dean of Students Office, Student Health and Counseling, Accessibility Resource Center, UNM Police, among other departments, we hope BARC will help you to identify a potentially difficult situation and provide you with specific ideas and resources when you encounter student behaviors that are of concern.
It is important to note that the university does not expect you to assume the role of counselor, therapist or police officer. For those responsibilities, UNM has trained professionals who are ready to assist you with students who are of concern to you.
UNM is committed to the health and safety of all members of our community. To safeguard our campus, BARC has developed a comprehensive online reporting form to share appropriate information, so students can receive or stay connected to the academic support and student wellness services they need. Please submit this form if you are concerned about a student who is exhibiting any disturbing behaviors.
