RCTC recognizes providing the safest environment possible is an integral element of the college’s educational mission and annually publishes a Campus Security Report that is available to everyone. This report provides statements of policy for a broad range of safety and security programs including crime prevention programs, reporting procedures, personal safety, community relations, environmental safety, enforcement authority and response and a three-year statistical review of designated crimes on campus. This report is designed to inform and educate you on the measures that can be taken and the services available to you to assist in maintaining a safe and secure learning environment. A printed copy of this report may be obtained, at no charge from Campus Security at 851 30th Avenue, SE, CF102, Rochester, MN 55904, phone 507-280-5050.

Complete the anonymous screening via MindWise.

If you are experiencing feelings like prolonged sadness, anxiety, irritability, loss of pleasure, hopelessness or another mental health concern, we encourage you to take a quick, anonymous screening.

Screenings for depression, generalized anxiety disorder, alcohol misuse, eating disorders, bipolar disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder are available. You will receive immediate results at the end of each screening.  You can print these results and bring them to a mental health therapist for further discussion and evaluation, if indicated. Please note that these screenings are not intended to be a clinical diagnosis, but they may be helpful to your therapist.

RCTC has resources to help! When you see your results, scroll down to the Resources page for more information.
