From the Dean

The safety of the students we serve is always our top priority.

I strongly encourage each of you to attend one of the upcoming WSU Health & Wellness training opportunities to learn how to identify and respond to students who appear to be in distress.

If you have concerns about a student right now and aren’t sure how to respond or who should know about your concerns, Counseling and Psychological Services is available 24/7 at 509-335-4511.
