Student Distress

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.


For urgent situations, including concerns about a missing student, call MUPD (513-529-2222).

When in doubt, call MUPD (513-529-2222).
