There is a University Crisis and Emergency Management (CEM) Team that is responsible for the safety and security of the NUS community on campus.
CARE (Caring Action in Response to an Emergency) Network is an integral part of the CEM Team. Members of Faculty and Staff are selected by the Unit Incident Commander (UIC) to provide logistical support in an event of a critical incident or crisis.
Members undergo a half day training to learn basic skills in supporting individuals in crisis situations.
If you would like to be a CARE member, please contact your Faculty’s UIC to indicate your interest. Alternatively, you may like to log onto the staff intranet portal for more information about the University’s Crisis Management Framework.
Health Advocates play a key role in the promotion of health and wellness among NUS staff. Appointed by their respective faculties, they serve as UHC’s health and wellness ambassadors by helping to direct staff to relevant activities and resources. Health advocates will have access to the latest health information and resources to assist their role in health promotion.
Student Support Managers (SSMs)
Demanding academic schedules and personal commitments can always leave a student overwhelmed. As a student, you may not be aware of the right avenues to approach for resources.
Under the Student Life division, you have direct access to a designated Faculty Student Support Manager (SSM). A support and guide through your academic journey, your SSM connects you to the available resources on campus. While your SSM may not be a counsellor, he/she can refer you to the appropriate services such as the Counselling and Psychological Services for further assistance should you require them.
If you would like to know more about what your faculty SSM can do for you, please approach your Faculty’s Student Life Office.
