Report a Concern

When concerns are reported, the Care Team, managed by the Student Support Office, will assess the situation, offer support, and provide referrals to the breadth of resources on-campus.

A student of concern is any student who displays behaviors that may interfere with their or others' ability to be successful and function well in the living, learning or work environment.
