Student Care

Student Care Team

Rochester University has created a multi-disciplinary group of professionals from across campus who are committed to evaluating, assisting and responding to the health and safety needs of students as well as the campus community.

The purpose of the team is to respond to reports about concerning student behavior to ensure the well-being of the student and the RU campus. This includes the gathering and sharing of information in order to devise a coordinated plan for assessment, intervention and care management. For more information, please see the Student Handbook.

Title IX / Sexual Misconduct

Rochester University is committed to providing a safe environment that is free from all forms of sex/gender harassment, discrimination and misconduct, examples of which can include acts of sexual violence, sexual harassment, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking for students, faculty, staff, and visitors.  All members of the campus community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others. Such conduct is detrimental to the well-being of our community.

We are committed to providing support, as well as assist in all aspects of reporting and responding to a situation.  Learn how to report incidents and what resources are available for you either by contacting our Title IX Coordinator, Dr. Sharia Hays at
