Resources for Optimizing Student Interactions

This section provides resources for enhancing student interactions offered at APSU. These resources are intended to help faculty and staff promote well-being in the classroom and in conversations with students.

In a situation where a faculty member observes a student whose behavior is concerning or may pose a potential health and/or safety threat, kindly complete the CARE/BIT FORM

Physiological needs are biological requirements for human survival, e.g. air, food, drink, shelter, clothing, warmth, and sleep. If these needs are not satisfied the human body cannot function optimally.

 

The student series will build through five workshops in helping our students climb the mountain of self-actualization beginning with addressing Physiological Needs.

 

Some key APSU links to help support students in meeting these needs are below:

 

On-campus Resources

S.O.S. Food Pantry

APSU Emergency Funds

 

How to respond to students facing food insecurities:

  1. Express empathy and gratitude
  2. Ask questions
  3. Inform them about resources available

Physiological Needs

People want to experience order, predictability and control in their lives. These needs can be fulfilled by the family and society (e.g. police, schools, business and medical care). If these needs are not satisfied the human body cannot function optimally.

 

For example, emotional security, financial security (e.g. employment, social welfare), law and order, freedom from fear, social stability, property, health and wellbeing (e.g. safety against accidents and injury).
