Administrator-on-Call Program

The Division of Student Affairs operates a 24/7 Administrator-on-Call Duty system for after-hours response to students in crisis, campus emergencies, and for situations that potentially compromise the health and safety of students. The full-time professional staff that serve in the on-call rotation provide emergency response after business hours to support on-campus and residential student communities. The administrators include an Area Coordinator on Duty, Director on Duty, Dean on Call, and Counselor on Duty.

The focus of response efforts are to provide students with immediate access to essential resources and to coordinate follow-up with appropriate departments the following business day. The administrators on call work closely with campus partners including the George Washington University Police Department (GWPD), the Colonial Health Center, Facilities Services, and GW Housingas appropriate.

Any student in crisis or experiencing an emergency should immediately notify GWPD at (202) 994-6111.

For 24/7 consultation with a professional counselor or for 24/7 medical advice, students can call the Colonial Health Center at (202) 994-5300.

If there is not an immediate concern requiring notification of GWPD or if you are concerned about a student, the Division of Student Affairs encourages community members to submit a CARE Network report.
