The Office of Student Support and Case Management (OSSCM) was organized in 2011 as a way to provide comprehensive service to students of concern. Working in cooperation with the Dean of Students Office, OSSCM serves as the primary resource for managing referrals and student issues related to crisis intervention. The office will make referrals to the Campus Assessment & Intervention Team, as necessary.
Individuals concerned about a Mason student are encouraged to share their concerns if they:
- observe behavior which could reasonably lead one to be concerned for the student’s safety, or for the safety of those around him/her;
- feel threatened by the student, whether by action or direct verbal threat;
- observe new behavior, different from a previously established pattern of behavior, that causes concern to the observer.
