There are times in which parents or family members feel the need to contact the university concerning a student. If you are a parent or concerned party, you can contact us and we can give you guidance on how to proceed. We will do our best to connect you with the appropriate resources.
Feel free to direct students to us or to contact us regarding a consultation, resources, or if you have any concerns regarding:
- a student’s well-being
- a student emergency (such as a death in the family) or serious personal incident (such as sexual assault)
- about a significant student mental/physical health issue
- a student struggling with a university-related challenge
Please note that we operate in compliance with the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) so certain information may be unavailable without a release. However, while we may not be able to discuss a specific situation we can, in general, discuss policies and procedures. Often times this can go a long way in resolving concerns about how things work on campus.
If you believe someone needs immediate help, please call 911.
