OU student support committee
(2008-09-06)
(WOUB) - Ohio University is officially starting a new program to provide holistic support for students.

Ryan Lombardi, OU's Dean of Students and chair of the the Student Review and Consultation Committee, says the committee will look at how best to assist students who have shown troubling behavior.

But what constitutes troubling behavior?

Lombardi says more than anything, it's a drastic change in behavior that will catch the committee's attention.

The committee will learn about students mainly through referrals from faculty and staff.

And Lombardi says his hope is to involve university judiciaries as little as possible, although at times it may be inevitable.

The concept was piloted during the last school year and was modeled after a program used at the University of Illinois for the past 20 years.
