Policies and Regulations

Student Suicide Prevention Protocol

The College recognizes that a student’s physical, behavioral, and emotional health is an integral component of a student’s academic success at the College.  While we have always had procedures in place to address students in crisis, the purpose of this new protocol is to strengthen our ability to protect the health hereand well-being of all students by having clearer and more concrete procedures in place to identify, assess the risk of, intervene in, and respond to suicidal behavior.  This new protocol is activated when the College has actual knowledge that a student is actively engaged in suicidal behavior, has previously engaged in suicidal behavior while enrolled at the College or recently before matriculation, or has stated plans or intentions to commit suicide.  A student who engages in any of these behaviors may be required to comply with the College’s Readiness to Return Policy before being permitted to resume classes.  The Student Suicide Prevention Protocol is administered by the Dean of Student’s Office and copies are available in the Dean’s Office or electronically by request to communitystandards@middlesex.mass.edu.
