Death of a Student

Student Loss and Grieving

While death frequently brings up complex emotions, the loss of a student in a campus community can be especially tragic and difficult to deal with. We are committed to responding to all incidents with caring support to help those dealing with loss and healing.

The Vice President for Student Affairs Office serves as the campus liaison for families, friends, and the larger Aggie Family. Additional resources frequently used by students are CAPS and the CARE office.

Our services and support include:

  • Organizing grief support for impacted students
  • Providing guidance and resources for families of students
  • Notifying appropriate university officials, including faculty of impacted students

If you are seeking support or have been made aware of a student death, please contact our office at 435-797-3137.
