Student of concern reports may be made to Advocacy and Support Center
October 21, 2015
Individuals concerned for the well-being or personal success of a student can file a student of concern report with the Advocacy and Support Center.
Reports can be submitted by faculty, staff, students and members of the community who know the student. Submissions can be reported anonymously if preferred.
“This reporting link makes it possible for anyone to report concerns for a student at any point, day or night,” says Steven Yeagley, assistant dean of students in crisis management. “By making it easier to submit concerns, we are able to assist a higher number of students."
Since fall 2014, when the reporting tool was created, the center has received 159 reports.
Some concerns to watch for include homesickness, excessive absence from class, observed self-injurious behavior such as extreme thinness, burns or cuts and substance abuse.
Once reports are received, the center will provide individualized outreach to the student. Students will be invited to come to the center, discuss the reported concern and form a plan to address the issue or issues.
