Community Support

If you are (or someone you are with is) in immediate danger or feel unsafe, call 9-1-1.

All students have the option of contacting outside community agencies for support. These agencies do not have the same obligations as the university report or investigate incidents. 

Outside agencies do not have the authority to independently arrange on-campus remedies, including housing changes, academic accommodations, assistance with financial aid, or other academic and campus accommodations. For assistance with these type of accommodations, please contact CARE at 765-495-2273 (CARE).
