Recent cases of meningococcal meningitis resulting in a fatality at an Oregon college campus have prompted the passing of SB 274, effective as of January 2018. This bill requires Oregon colleges and universities that offer student housing to inform new students about immunization-prevented illnesses.
The University Health & Counseling Center encourages all students and staff members to be informed of symptoms and risks associated with these immunization-prevented illnesses. We promote prevention through vaccination and awareness. Please review this information provided by the Oregon Health Authority regarding symptoms of these immunization-prevented illnesses, preventive measures, recommended and required vaccines, and information regarding these vaccines. This information will be distributed to students, faculty, and staff members at the beginning of the spring semester.
For more information contact the Health & Counseling Center at x7134 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
As faculty and students return for the winter months of our “Spring” semester, the Teaching and Learning Collaborative hopes some might find it useful to get a primer (or, more optimistically, a reminder) about mental health services for students on campus. See the TLC blog for an overview of the who, what, where, when, and why of what faculty and academic staff might find relevant about counseling services for students at the UP Health and Counseling Center.
