Lions Care

  • Your Health Comes First

    Lions Care is a university-wide initiative that embraces our institutional Core Values, especially the values of Respect and Community.   Sponsored by the division of student affairs, Lions Care provides resources for individuals who may need assistance. 

    Lions Care is an umbrella for care-related resources for the University community.  Through this site you may access many resources and reporting avenues so that appropriate follow-up action can be taken by members of the staff.  The intent of the website is to proactively:

    1. Foster a caring and safer University community
    2. Engage University community members as active participants, not as idle bystanders, in assisting other community members.
    3. Provide campus-based and community resources, and
    4. Provide appropriate referral and reporting mechanisms to address concerns.
  • Lions Care offers counseling services for students

The division of student affairs is committed to promoting greater awareness of high risk behaviors and their impact on individuals and the community; providing prevention education opportunities for University community members and creating an environment that empowers survivors to access resources on and off-campus.  From role modeling and training others on appropriate bystander actions to advocating for and supporting those impacted by high risk behaviors, the members of the student affairs staff are here to help. 

Threat Assessment Behavioral Intervention Team

Saint Leo University has established a Threat Assessment Behavioral Intervention Team (TABIT) to assist in addressing situations where students, faculty, or staff are displaying disruptive or threatening behaviors that potentially impede their own or others’ ability to function successfully or safely. The process is designed to help identify persons whose behaviors potentially endanger their own or others' health and safety.

It is the responsibility of faculty, staff, and students to immediately report any situation that could possibly result in harm to anyone at the University. Any member of the campus community may become aware of a troubling person or situation that is causing serious anxiety, stress, or fear and, if so, this information should be provided to TABIT through the Office of Campus Safety & Security (352-588-8432).

In cases where a person may pose an immediate risk of violence to self or others, please call 911.
