Our campus is in shock mourning the loss of one of our students and the injury of three others in a violent incident on our campus yesterday afternoon.
It’s normal to experience difficulty focusing, increased stress and a range of emotions after something like this. As you take care of students, fellow staff and faculty during this difficult time, please remember to take care of yourself.
These resources are available to support our students and staff:
- Student Emergency Services in the Office of the Dean of Students: A resource for affected students, offering advocacy, referrals and absence notifications.
- Counseling & Mental Health Center (CMHC): UT Austin students may call CMHC Crisis Line at 512-471-2255 to speak with a trained counselor. CMHC also has information available on its website.
- Behavior Concerns Advice Line (BCAL): BCAL provides a central resource to anyone who is concerned about an individual on our campus and may not be sure about how best to help them. By calling the advice line (512-232-5050), or submitting information online, campus and community support networks may be accessed; optimizing the chance that individuals will receive needed assistance. Contact BCAL if you are concerned about someone and want to help.
- Employee Assistance Program (EAP): Staff may access EAP to speak confidentially with a counselor.
Thank you for caring for each other and our students during this difficult time.
