Typical POC was a Caucasian, heterosexual, undergraduate (male or female) who reported high level of general distress and was already a client at the counseling center
The typical SOC is a Caucasian, undergraduate, male who is not a client at the counseling center. He was referred to the committee by campus police or faculty/staff because of concern about his suicidal thoughts or behavior.
