Campus Mental Health Task Force
Chancellor Santiago appointed a Campus Mental Health Task Force in the fall of 2008. The charge of the committee was to comprehensively review and analyze the data collection and needs assessment of the Counseling Subcommittee Report of President Reilly’s Security, the Governor’s Report on Security, the results of the System mental health services audit and additional data from NCHA and other surveys, reports and research to create a complete picture of the current status of the mental health delivery services and mental health needs of UWM’s diverse student population. In December of 2008 the task force created a preliminary report which was shared with the campus community. The final report was presented to the Chancellor and Cabinet in May 2010 and to Interim Chancellor Lovell in December of 2010. The recommendation of the report that a Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on Mental Health be created was realized with the appointment of the Co-Chairs of this Committee in January of 2011.
