Faculty and staff who become aware of a student’s crisis situation may walk that student to the Counseling Center for immediate assistance during business hours, or they may assist the student in calling 304-696-3111 and selecting the Crisis Counselor option from the available options. If the student is not with you, instead select the option to speak with our Front Desk or MUPD.
