Public Safety Response

Programs are available for students, employees and immediate family members whose personal problems are adversely affecting job or academic performance. SAP (Student Assistance Program) and EAP (Employees Assistance Program) are designed to serve members of the university community who wish to seek assistance for themselves, a co-worker or family member. Referral and on-campus assessment services are confidential, free of charge, and easily accessible. Any services that are provided beyond the SNHU campus may involve a fee; however, these services may be covered by medical insurance.

In addition to these services, the SAP Committee meets regularly to review student violations of the Southern New Hampshire University Alcohol and Other Drug Policy and Procedures. Reviews by the committee are conducted to identify behavioral patterns that pose a health or safety risk to the individual and/or university community.

Activities of the SAP Committee are intended to be educational in nature and to complement the disciplinary sanctions imposed by the university. The process employed by the SAP Committee is explained in detail in the Student Handbook.
