Every college and university has a different name and configuration of staff engaged in the important work of supporting students in crisis. Given varied orientations to the work, and different privacy concerns, communication is often muddled, and the role of each stakeholder is often ambiguous, leading some to question: Should disability resource professionals even be involved in these conversations at all? We believe the answer is YES! Whether you’re new to BITs or still working to get a seat at the table, we’ll discuss the many important roles you can play from supporting struggling students to addressing ableism and stigma on your campus.
