The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and other student privacy regulations generally allow university faculty and staff to share observations about behavior of students, statements made by students, and concerns about students with Georgia Tech personnel, parents, law enforcement, and anyone else whose knowledge of the information is necessary to protect the health and safety of the student or other individuals

Supporting Your Mental Health & Well-being

All healthcare benefits-eligible employees and their families have access to the program. Visit Georgia Tech's Health and Wellbeing EAP webpage for more information and access to services.

Immediate Help

When faced with academic and life challenges, students may feel alone, isolated and even hopeless. These feelings can easily disrupt academic performance and lead to unhealthy coping or other serious consequences.

As a result of your frequent and prolonged contact, you may be the first person to notice a student in distress. As fellow members of the Georgia Tech community, it is natural that we feel and show compassion.

Keep in mind that students exhibiting concerning behaviors may be having difficulties in other areas of their lives. Students sometimes feel that they can’t share their struggles with family and friends but may be comfortable doing so with faculty or staff. By expressing concern, you may be able to save a students’ academic career or even their life.

If you feel unsafe: call 911 or GTPD at 404-894-2500 for immediate help.
