Safety and Well-being
Public Safety Programs
A suite of public safety programs is provided by the Office of Facility Operations in collaboration with the Office of Student Affairs. These programs include security patrol, escort, transportation, and identification and access services to maintain a safe and secure campus environment that is conducive to learning, working, living, and visiting. A trained staff focuses on crime prevention and investigation, safety education, emergency preparedness, and response and recovery. Safety education awareness programs are conducted for students throughout the academic year.
Student Insurance and Accident Reports
The Office of Student Affairs provides consultations for students in need of insurance and can assist students in purchasing a student insurance plan. Dance students are required to have health insurance.
Accident insurance is provided for all students while involved in College-related activities. Injuries that result from College-related activities must be reported to the faculty or staff member in charge and to the Office of Facility Operations within 24 hours of the time of injury.
Immunization and Health Services
The College requires all students to provide proof of immunity against measles, mumps, and rubella in order to enroll. Students who provide (1) a certificate from a physician stating that in the opinion of the physician such immunization is medically contraindicated; (2) a written statement that such immunization would be contrary to the student’s religious or spiritual beliefs; or (3) a laboratory or medical report documenting immunity will be deemed to have satisfied this requirement.
The Office of Student Affairs provides health education to students, staff, and faculty through publications, information sessions, and counseling.
Student Affairs also maintains information on the nearest hospitals and other medical facilities. In the event of a medical emergency, students are directed to the nearest hospital emergency room or to call 9–1–1 for an ambulance.
Disability Support Services
In the spirit of the federal and state disabilities laws, Fei Tian College provides disability consultation and coordinates reasonable special accommodations for qualified individuals with disabilities, including temporary disabilities due to injury. Disability support services are requested through the Office of Student Affairs and determined individually based on the disability condition, and may include academic, programmatic, and other special accommodations as well as counseling.
Disability support services may include:
- academic accommodations, including: providing taped classes; converting documents to accessible formats (e.g., scanned books); providing temporary online courses where feasible; providing extended time on assignments and tests;
- programmatic accommodations, including: priority registration for courses; reduced course load; and providing recommendations and facilitating access to the campus; and
- other accommodations, including: dietary accommodations for meals or meal plans.
Wellness and Support Services
College students may encounter a variety of challenges including separation from family and friends, the transition to adulthood, developing new relationships, and defining and committing themselves to a career path. At the same time, they continue to deepen their understanding of themselves and of life.
The Office of Student Affairs offers services to support students' emotional and spiritual well-being. Staff help students talk through their life situations through individual counseling and small group sharing sessions. They can offer advice with the goals of helping students develop a positive mindset, think of the big picture, learn and grow from life lessons and let go of past shortcomings. They can also help develop coping activities that students can perform to handle stress and develop resilience to improve their situation and make their goals attainable.
Staff can also make off-campus referrals for students to community providers of specialized health and wellness services when they believe a student needs additional support.Life at Fei Tian › Safety and Well-being
