If you continue not to be sure if a student should be referred, contact any one of the SCC members.
 
Who can make a referral?
Students may be referred directly to the SCC by any individual who has observed or witnessed behavior of a student that is concerning. Faculty, staff, students, friends, parents and community members who interact with our students can refer. Students can be referred anonymously.
 
What happens after a student is referred to the SCC Committee?
The Dean of Students (who serves as the SCC Chair) and the case manager from the Dean of Students Office receives SCC referrals. If the referral suggests that the student may be a student of concern, the student is asked (by phone and/or email) to meet with the case manager. In cases when the student is not available to meet with the case manager (e.g., the student has returned to a non-local permanent residence), the case manager will attempt to arrange a phone call with the student.

Based upon the information provided by the referral and from this meeting/phone call with the student, along with consultation with SCC members, the Dean of Students will propose an action plan to the student. This plan will be outlined in a letter from the Dean of Students that will be mailed and emailed to the student.
 
In accordance with FERPA, following assessment and intervention with the student of concern, the SCC will provide feedback to the referring individual to inform them of resolution of the case and any follow-up which may be needed.
