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.


Just a sampling of what this webinar will cover:

  • Essential steps t0 be taken, and mistakes to be avoided, from the moment the student death is discovered through the crucial first 48 to 72 hours
  • Best practices for dealing with the multiple constituencies within and outside the campus community in the weeks following the passing of the initial shockwaves
  • The grounds on which the institution and individual administrators, staff or faculty may be sued in the aftermath of a fatal tragedy
  • Appropriate post-tragedy investigations and disciplinary actions that may be necessary
  • Rebuilding institutional reputation, a sense of the campus as a safe space, and other longer-range corrective actions
