Why Report a Concern?
Connecting the Dots: The crisis prevention team receives referrals from the entire college community, including satellite campuses. Our ability to connect your concerns with reports made by others means better support for our campus.
We are a supportive community: Reporting a concern shows the student that you want to help him or her, and that you care about all students and their right to learn and study in a safe environment.
Intervention is important: Reporting your concern to the Crisis Prevention team means an early intervention. Providing students with support sooner rather than later will help ensure that the student receives the services they need, perhaps preventing a crisis or dangerous situation.
In some cases it’s mandated: In certain case faculty, staff and students are required to report acts of violence, concern or other threatening behaviors.
