My students don’t come to lecture.

Students are feeling overwhelmed by other academic and/or non-academic demands.


Encourage students to use support services.

If you identify students who are not attending lecture because they are overwhelmed, refer them to Academic Development, their advisor, the Counseling Center, Student Affairs, and/or Student Health). If you have questions about how best to refer students to these services, contact the respective professionals for advice.
