Crisis Response

Including after-hours & weekend response.

All emergencies (medical, psychological, police) should be directed to 9-1-1 FIRST. Once emergency assistance has been dispatched, Campus Safety Dispatchers will then notify the Student Life Emergency On-Call Response System for follow-up.

Situations that may be deemed a crisis that occur during normal working hours (8:00 am until 5:00 pm, Monday-Friday) should be referred to the respective office of Student Health Services at 336-278-7230 or Counseling Services at 336-278-7280. Call 9-1-1 for a life threatening situation requiring more immediate assistance.

In the event of a wide scale emergency event (i.e. weather event), E-Net is the best source of current information. Students and parents should consult E-Net first for the most updated information, including information about closing, class cancellations etc.
