In instances of extreme student distress, simply offering a referral/submitting a report is not sufficient. In these instances, it is imperative to ensure that a connection with an appropriate resource (public safety, personal counseling center, dean's office, etc.) is accomplished. If the distressed student is unwilling to permit this, faculty/staff/students should still contact a College official (public safety, dean) for assistance.
Any person may submit a report to the CARE Team to share concerns about a particular student.
To submit a report, please contact the Office of the Dean of Students at 401.865.1782, or email the Dean of Students, Dr. Steven Sears, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or the Assistant Dean of Students, Tiffany Gaffney, at email@example.com. In order to best allow the Office of the Dean Students to provide appropriate services to the student of concern, please be prepared to provide as much of the following information as you can when making a report:
Once you make a report, The Dean of Students Office will reach out to the student to offer support and connect him or her with appropriate resources on campus or in the community. Using an interdisciplinary case management approach, the CARE Team develops intervention plans for students and monitors their status.
The Office of the Dean of Students will acknowledge receipt of all reports and may contact you to obtain additional information. You may contact the Dean of Students office at any time if you have questions about how the report is being handled.
