Cowley College offers its students a variety of resources to support
student success. Sometimes, however, students do not ask for the
help they need. When this happens, resources are not used, and students
can fall short of their potential. For each student who does not
ask for help, there are often other concerned individuals that are
aware of the student’s unmet needs. These individuals could help
the student if there were a way of reporting the concerns to the appropriate
Many institutions of higher education are addressing this issue through an approach
called Student of Concern Reporting. This approach involves providing
concerned individuals with a way to report their concerns to those who can be
of assistance. Concerned individuals may include other students, employees of
the college, a student’s
family and friends, and other members of the community. Their concerns
may include (but are not limited to) possible dangerousness to self or others,
mental health issues, alcohol and drugs, disabilities, and medical concerns.
A Student of Concern report form is provided below in an online format. If
you have concerns about a Cowley College student, you are encouraged to complete
and submit a report. The
report goes directly to the office of the Executive Director of Student Affairs
who will (1) review the report, (2) if appropriate, assemble a team of Cowley
College employees to investigate the concerns and, (3) if appropriate, develop
an action plan to address the concerns.
Questions about Student of Concern reporting may be addressed to Jason O'Toole, Executive Director of Student Affairs, at 620-441-5253 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
