UTSA offers multiple resources to assist with behavioral concerns

Share this Story

(Sept. 19, 2012) -- The UTSA community includes faculty, staff, students and visitors on campus. As with any community, there may be times when you become concerned with the behavior of another community member.

Examples of concerning behavior include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Written materials are submitted that contain wording that seems alarming or out of context.
  • Actions or comments are noticeably and significantly different than the person's typical behavior (i.e., decreased stability and/or increasing irritability, etc.). This may include comments made on social media sites.
  • Increasingly withdrawn or moody, or the person has not been seen or heard from for a period of time that is out of the ordinary.
  • A community member may not be respecting appropriate personal boundaries (i.e., inappropriate communications or stalking) in a manner that makes another uncomfortable.
  • You become aware of a post on a social media website that leads you to suspect that a community member may be planning a violent act.

An interdisciplinary partnership that includes staff members from the Office of Student Life, Counseling Services, Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards, Office of Academic Affairs, Office of Human Resources and the UTSA Police Department (PD), is in place to respectfully, confidentially and professionally respond to university community members who may have such concerns.

For non-emergencies, if you are concerned about the behavior of a UTSA community member, you may electronically report your concerns at the Behavioral Concerns Assistance website.

While it is preferred that reports include contact information, all anonymous reports will be investigated. Best efforts will be made to keep your report confidential in accordance with applicable laws.

The UTSA PD provides a 24-hour telephone line (210-458-4242) that also may be used to report a threat of violence or behavioral concerns. This number should NOT be used for emergency situations. Any person reporting an emergency on campus should immediately call 911 from a UTSA phone or 210-458-4911 from a cell phone or other non-UTSA phone.

 

 

Did You Know?

Sometimes you have to see the little picture

UTSA researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.

That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.

Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
