Collaboration and help supporting students

Helping students in distress

If you’re concerned about a student, we can help. Our counselors and Community Consultation & Intervention (CCI) team members are available to assist faculty and staff members regarding students in distress. Visit our Resources for Faculty & Staff page for more details.

You may also refer to our Programming for Faculty & Staff page for information about our “Notice & Respond” trainings.

Classroom collaboration

Each year we collaborate with members of the Cornell faculty to enhance the student learning experience and integrate student health concerns into existing curricula. Cornell Health staff members have served as resources for class projects, guest lectures, and research partnerships. Faculty members have also rewarded students with “extra credit” for participation in Cornell Health focus groups, surveys, and outreach projects.

If you have an idea, or would like to consult with us about curriculum infusion or other collaborative projects, please contact our Skorton Center for Health Initiatives.

Health Leaves of Absence

Cornell students may apply for a voluntary leave of absence (a separation of the student from the university) for health reasons. Health Leaves of Absence are managed through Cornell Heath. Learn more on our Health Leave of Absence page.
