Faculty and Staff Resources
Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
All health plans offered to state employees and their dependents have employee assistance programs (EAPs). Included within VCU's EAP is up to four sessions at no charge for services such as: mental health, alcohol or drug abuse assessment, child or elder care, grief counseling and legal or financial services.
Office of the Provost Faculty Resources
The provost's office offers many resources for VCU faculty to use in the classroom and beyond. Use this section to find resources and links to important university information. Additional resources are available to faculty members from their department or academic unit.
The Dean of Students Office provides most commonly referred on-campus student resources. Feel free to utilize this list to offer support for students, and, if you are concerned about a student, share a concern or call the Dean of Students Office at (804) 828-8940 and they will assess during normal business hours how to best support your concern. If the student is disruptive and uncooperative, behaves as if under the influence of a controlled substance, appears volatile or dangerous, or is demonstrating immediate harm to self or others, immediately call VCU Police at (804) 828-1234 or call 911.
University Counseling Services Guidance
Faculty and staff are often on the front lines for students in distress. A student often views faculty/ staff as confidants, role modesl, or friends. You are welcome to call University Counseling Services to consult with one of our staff about how to best help a student.
VCU Honor System
All instructors, including faculty, staff, and student instructors, are expected to discuss the Honor System at the beginning of a course and to describe Honor System requirements in course syllabi. An instructor suspecting a violation must file a charge with the Office of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity and continue to administer, assess, or grade academic work on the specific assignment as if no violation of the Honor System has occurred.
