What is an Alert
An alert is an action that you as faculty can take to inform the student and other support services (people) on campus about a concern regarding a student’s success in your course or in general. These can be solicited via Progress Reports or unsolicited via an “ad-hoc” alert.
Any faculty can submit an “ad-hoc” alert that will start the process of increasing support for the student. Depending on the situation there will be a varied amount of communication between the “Case Owner”, the faculty, and the student.
*Note for academic concerns: faculty teaching the course can often engage with their students and solve many student issues. Faculty are expected to engage with students in their classes first, prior to submitting an alert. If the issue still exists after attempting to intervene with the student, then faculty should submit an alert.
