Supporting Students of Concern
At Emerson, we care about each other! Students sometimes struggle in ways that lead us to be concerned for their well-being. All members of the Emerson Community are strongly encouraged to report behaviors that they feel are concerning or worrisome (no matter how small or insignificant they may seem) with the appropriate staff who can help.
Who are we?
The Student Care and Support Office receives referrals from students, faculty, staff, etc. about students of concern. The Office works with key partners on campus to provide support for those students with a goal of helping them succeed academically and personally.
Why Make a Referral? Three Important Reasons
- Early intervention means rapid solutions: Often, a quick response to provide a distressed student with timely resources will help ensure that the student remains as successful as possible, and potentially prevent bigger issues from occurring.
- Connecting the Dots: Our office receives reports from all over campus. Our ability to connect your concerns with the concerns of others means we are able to provide a greater level of support for each student involved. When putting together a puzzle every piece of information matters!
- We Care, You Care: Making a referral shows that you care enough to get the student the help they need. It means you are not prepared to let a student fall through the cracks, and that Emerson is a community that takes care of its members!
