University Assistance for Students in Distress

Student WavingIf at any time you need individual one-on-one assistance to discuss a situation involving a student, do not hesitate to call us and speak with one of our professionally trained counselors. We can be reached Monday - Friday, 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM by calling 812/464-1867. Please click here for information about emergencies.

Assistance is also available through the USI CARE Team, which is a cross-functional assessment group, chaired by the Dean of Students. This team, of which the Counseling Center is a part, works collaboratively to provide confidential, respectful, and proactive support and resources. The CARE Team centralizes the reporting of information, publicizes current policy, and encourages early intervention.

Anyone (students, parents, faculty/staff, community members) can make a CARE Team referral when they know of a student in need or when they are concerned about a student's behavior. Please go to the CARE Team website to learn more about the CARE Team and how to make a referral. Although not encouraged, referrals may be made anonymously.
