Managing Unforeseen Student Death on Campus
In 2019 three of the top five causes of young-adult deaths are accident, suicide, and substance abuse. Sound familiar? Not only are these the “big three” on our campuses, but they often overlap, such as when alcohol leads to a fatal car crash or hazing fatality… or drug abuse is the unsuccessful self-medication for depression, resulting in suicide.
Unfortunately, despite our best intentions and best efforts, a student death is an ever-present possibility. In fact, every career college administrator is likely to have to deal with at least one such tragedy --- and possibly more. Knowing what to do… and what not to do… can make or break a career, while the institution is protected from or subjected to a PR and legal nightmare.
Please join Dr. Jim Castagnera for comprehensive guidance on how to best manage student death on campus.
