Concerned About a Student? (CARE)

EMERGENCIES AND URGENT CONCERNS

If you feel threatened, or are concerned about someone's immediate health, safety, or welfare, call the Department of Public Safety (717-337-6911). They can work with you to assess the situation and determine if immediate action is necessary or if a referral to the Dean of Students, Julie Ramsey, (717-337-6900) is appropriate.

TROUBLING BEHAVIOR

If you are concerned about someone's behavior or you have information about a student that causes you concern, please call the Dean of Students, Julie Ramsey, (717-337-6900) or the Office of Academic Advising (717-337-6579).  The Dean of Students can work with you to determine the next appropriate step(s) which may include a referral to Health (717-337-6970) & Counseling (717-337-6960), CARE Group, or other campus/community resources.
