Bard College Student Handbook

Emergency Response Team

Security, phone: 7777

Students in need of support can find help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling Security and requesting the administrator-on-duty. Members of the Dean of Student Affairs staff share an on-duty rotation throughout the year, providing help and support for students in need.  This includes accompanying students to the local hospital if needed, helping to resolve a conflict, or talking through a personal matter. For more immediate or serious mental health issues, the administrator-on-duty will connect students to the counselor-on-duty.

Peer-supported emergency services, Bard’s Emergency Medical Service (EMS), and the BRAVE hotline, may also be reached by contacting Security at 845-758-7777.
