Kaskaskia College, by and through its Student Services Division, is committed to provision of timely support and facilitation of referral for students, faculty, and staff in addressing student behavioral issues and promoting student safety and academic success.

To accomplish these goals, a Student Wellness Intervention and Facilitation Team (SWIFT) will be formed to serve as a reporting resource for the College community and to formalize procedures for sharing information among faculty and staff.  The goal of the team is to provide threat assessment, early identification of needs, assistance to persons on campus, and facilitation of referrals.  The existence of the Team in no way guarantees that incidents will be prevented.  The Team is not a crisis response entity and should an incident occur; the Kaskaskia College emergency plan would become operational.

The development of the SWIFT Team is intended to be a proactive approach in addressing the needs outlined above, but such Team will not be able to address all situations or deal effectively with all situations.  The College assumes no liability for any identified or unidentified crises that occur either with or without involvement of the SWIFT Team.
