During the pandemic, students have experienced a learning disruption like never before. Your students' academic preparedness and readiness is likely to range more than past years. You can also expect a lower level of help-seeking behaviors. You can be there for your students by recognizing signs of distress and connecting them to the appropriate resource.

- You know the student in a non-professional way.
- You don’t feel you will be of help to them.
