Student Support Teams (SST) consist of individuals that offer expertise and information in a specific area to provide advice to the Vice-Provost, Students on how best to support the student during all stages of their involvement with the Policy. The composition of the team depends on the specific identity and needs of the individual student and may include staff from the registrar’s office, staff or faculty from the program/department, accessibility advisors, equity officers, and/or health and wellness staff. An SST always includes a regulated health professional.
Campus Safety staff do not participate as members of the SST, unless requested by the student. They may provide relevant information to the SST or consult on safety planning.
Student Support Teams are carefully constructed to meet individual student needs, keeping in mind that only as many people as needed are involved in an effort to maintain student confidentiality and privacy.
