Who Can Help When You Can't

For emergency situations, always call 911.

Rinella Learning Center

If the concern is primarily academic and the student may benefit from academic-oriented interventions, the Rinella Learning Center helps students build skills to succeed in and out of the classroom. They offer subject-specific tutoring, Supplemental Instruction, academic counseling, and academic coaching. They can also help identify possible learning concerns or disabilities.

Center for Student Engagement, Activities, and Leadership (SEAL)

If the student is not making meaningful connections or is expressing a lack of involvement, SEAL promotes student involvement, leadership development, and community outreach. Their SEAL Ambassadors can help students find their place and get involved at Miami.

Miller Center for Student Disability Services

If the student discloses a disability/diagnosis or asks for accommodations in the classroom, the Miller Center for Student Disability Services provides services and reasonable accommodations to ensure equal access to education and campus life at Miami.

Student Success Center (EMSS)

If the concern is a complicated issue that involves academics and/or a Miami policy/process, the Student Success Center focuses on advocacy, problem-solving, and retention. Staff can help students untangle and resolve complex problems and assist with navigating Miami policies and procedures.

Student Counseling Service

If the student expresses a desire to speak with someone confidentially or discloses mental health concerns, Miami's Student Counseling Service provides individual and group therapy, substance use assessment, workshops, and outreach to students. Students may also wish to call the H.O.P.E. Line (Help Over the Phone Everywhere) at 855-249-5649 to speak to a licensed mental health counselor at any time.

Title IX Response

If a student discloses information that falls under Miami’s duty to report policy or expresses concern
related to personal safety, please refer them to the Title IX Office. Sexual and interpersonal violence prevention and response is crucial to creating a safe, supportive, and healthy environment. Title IX programming includes topics of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.

Student Wellness

If the concern relates to a student's wellness choices (sleep, substance issues, or diet), the Office of Student Wellness provides education, resources, and services to promote student health and wellness. They raise awareness, coordinate programming, and influence policy that results in healthy choices.

Dean of Students

If you think a student is experiencing significant distress and have been unable to address the issue through conversation or make an appropriate targeted referral, use the Student Concern Reporting System to pass your concern to the Office of the Dean of Students.

Student Health Services

If the student discloses an illness or exhibits a need for medical attention, Student Health Services provides outpatient medical care. Services include general medicine, injury care, and immunizations, as well as gynecology, laboratory, and psychiatry services.
