Student Health and Counseling Services employs student clerks as drivers, to answer the office phone, to assist with scheduling, and to perform other tasks as needed. Student Clerks read and sign the following agreement:
Student Employee Confidentiality Agreement
I understand that my employment at Student Health and Counseling Services (SHACS) may include the following duties:
• answering phone calls
• scheduling appointments
• driving students to medical and mental health appointments
• driving students to pharmacies
• other tasks as assigned
I understand that I may answer phone calls to SHACS from students, faculty, staff, parents, health and mental health services providers, and others.
I will not seek access to records of student treatment at SHACS beyond what is necessary to schedule appointments.
I agree to maintain complete confidentiality of any and all information regarding students served by SHACS. I will neither discuss such information nor acknowledge that any student has or has not been served by SHACS. Because Grinnell College is a small community, I also agree to maintain complete confidentiality regarding ancillary contacts (e.g., a professor calling to request consultation about an unnamed – but possibly identifiable – student).
