For Faculty and Staff

Students, as well as faculty, staff, and administrators are experiencing increased demands, stress, and anxiety during this unusual time.  Don’t hold your concern for a student alone.  Please do not hesitate to reach out for support in assisting your students.

Information on Consultation Services

eGuide:  PLU Faculty and Staff Guide to Helping Students in Distress

In addition to (and in many cases even before) seeking consultation from our counseling staff, we strongly urge faculty and staff to submit a Student Care Network Reporting Form regarding students for whom you have health, wellness, and academic concerns.  A dedicated multi-disciplinary team of administrators from PLU work together to track these concerns and support students who are struggling at PLU.

Faculty, administrators and staff who are finding they would like additional wellness support can find initial support and referral assistance via PLU’s Employee Assistance Plan: First Choice Health.  To find out more or reach out for support, click here and enter username: pacific

If you need a consult on an urgent situation, please seek consultation from our PLU Crisis Line (253) 535-7075 for immediate support.

Wellness Videos for Classroom Use

It is our hope that you find this resource useful in your classroom as we have prepared these slides with you in mind. The purpose of this is to extend the learning experience into the classroom in regards to wellness at the petition of students. We hope you are able to take advantage of benefits of practicing coping strategies such as mindfulness with your students.

  • Slides are organized by topic and each topic includes several videos you can choose from that are less than 5 minutes long.
  • Each slide has a note as a suggestion for an introduction to the video and prompt questions to encourage students to join a conversation about the topic.


These videos are NOT therapy

If you feel uncomfortable or triggered in any way, feel free to stop your participation and do what is necessary for you to take care of yourself.

Please note that none of the videos are perfect, inclusive, or fitting for each individual or class.  You can search online for similar materials that are best for you.
