This message to all faculty and staff has been approved by Dr. Sally McRorie, Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs and Renisha Gibbs, Associate Vice President for Human Resources and Finance & Administration Chief of Staff.
Florida State University is committed to not only the academic success of our students, but also their well-being. Nationally, students are reporting increased levels of distress, putting them at risk for depression, substance abuse, and other negative outcomes. As a faculty or staff member, you may be the first one to notice signs of distress in a student. It is important that you are prepared to respond to such concerns.

To address this concern, the Florida Board of Governors has contracted with Kognito <http://click.message.fsu.edu/?qs=32c771bf0e882bb05e414e93568a7437e08f2ca637768ca68c1c2c9123a3f6a5005dffa4fe731e43fe8241d76f74924819162e75445a5a69> and implemented their At-Risk for Faculty and Staff online training. It is a simulation-based training designed to help faculty and staff members strengthen their ability to notice signs of emotional distress, use techniques to discuss concerns, and refer students to appropriate campus resources when necessary. While the simulation uses a faculty-student situation to demonstrate, the information and skills you will learn apply to faculty and staff. The simulation should take approximately 45 minutes to complete, depending on your level of engagement.

The Florida Board of Governors is requiring this training for all state university employees to include both faculty and staff. It is our expectation that you complete this training no later than October 9, 2020. Instructions for completing the training are listed below. If you have questions about the training, please contact University Counseling Center Kognito liaison, Jaymee Spannring, at jspannring at fsu.edu<mailto:jspannring at fsu.edu?subject=Kognito%20Training%20for%20Faculty%20and%20Staff>.

We thank you in advance for your compliance with this important requirement.
