Ms. Wolf's talk is open to the campus and may be of particular interest to the faculty, Student Affairs, Health Services staff as well as advisement and opportunity program professionals. This is a remarkable opportunity to learn more about topics that are of increasing importance in higher education. We expect Ms. Wolf to address liability issues within scope of practice and the nuts and bolts of mental health legal options for students at risk.
