Concerned about a student? 

University staff and administrators are here to help. The University has identified key Chapman community contacts that are experienced in responding to many kinds of student concerns and can offer assistance. These key personnel are members of the Student Concerns Intervention Team.

One of the best ways that we can identify students who may be having difficulty is when a caring individual reaches out to let us know about their concerns. Report a concern »

Community of Care

Fostering a community of care that supports the success of students is essential to the values of Chapman University. Since Chapman is a small community, there are natural ways in which we all interact in a close-knit environment. The University actively supports the philosophy that we are a community who cares about all its members and we are all encouraged to identify students who may be in need of additional support or services. The Student Concerns Intervention Team is one of the best ways to support the success of our students, especially those who may be dealing with a personal challenge.

What do we do?

Our goal is to create a network of care and support for students with concerns that emphasizes early intervention and academic success/progress for students dealing with difficulties and to connect students with appropriate resources or individuals that may help address their needs. The difficulties students may be experiencing could be academic, social, relationship based (family, romantic, friends, etc.), psychological, substance abuse, financial, or behavioral. 

We assess student behaviors of concern in the community and develop appropriate intervention plans. View behaviors of concern »

Student Concern Informational Report »

This report is one way you can share your concerns about a student. Please refer to the behavior of concern list for examples if red flags that may be reported through this form. The report will be forwarded directly to the two Associate Deans of Students in the Dean of Students Office. One of these two individuals will reach out to the student within 72 hours (excluding holidays) of the submission of the report. We will discuss the concerns included in the report and work with the student and other key campus personnel to develop an appropriate plan to support that student’s success and ensure the safety and well-being of the campus community.
