Support for Faculty and Staff

The Office of Student Support (OSS) also supports Camosun faculty and staff with individual consultations and group-based educational opportunities.


Student Support Manager

The OSS welcomes faculty and staff to reach out to a Student Support Manager at or 250-370-3311 to request a consultation, or to report when there is a non-academic misconduct concern or after receiving a disclosure of sexual or gender-based violence (or upon witnessing an incident). Student Support Managers work collaboratively with college partners to ensure the most appropriate student response under college policy and process.

Counselling Centre

For general student well-being and mental health concerns, that do not intersect with non-academic misconduct or sexualized violence, faculty and staff are invited to request a “faculty/staff consult” from Camosun’s Counselling Centre by calling 250-370-3571 or 250-370-4925.

If there is an immediate safety concern for a student in distress or an immediate safety risk to others on campus, contact Campus Security or 911 Emergency Services. Please review the Supporting Students in Distress document for more information on supporting students in crisis, as well as the Quick Guide to Student Supports.
