ADMINISTRATOR ON CALL (AOC)

The AOC system will continue to be available to all undergraduate students (on campus, off campus, or away from Brown), graduate students, and medical school students throughout the remainder of the semester. An AOC is able to respond to students, connect them with resources and referrals, consult with colleagues as needed, and gather information for additional follow-up during business hours. Students should note that the AOC is intended to ensure the safety of students, ensure that students receive the appropriate support and outreach they need during a crisis, and ensure that appropriate referrals are made to university offices for follow up on the next business day. Students with non-urgent questions or concerns should contact Student Support Services during business hours.
