There are many resources at Emory to help students succeed. Sometimes it can be overwhelming to know where to start. The Student Intervention Services (SIS) Team exists to help coordinate the university’s response for students in distress. We’re a one stop shop for students in distress, or for someone who wants to refer a student for help, but isn’t sure who to contact.
If you have questions or are unsure of the best resource for you or a student who may need help, please contact the SIS Team for assistance. You can make a referral online, and a member of the SIS Team will follow-up with you promptly. If you have an urgent concern please call the Emory Police Department at 404.727.6111 and ask them to page the Campus Life Professional on call.
