Aims Dean of Students offers services and supports other department’s service offerings that ensure a safe, positive and accessible learning experience for students and all members of the college community.
Members of the college community can contact the Dean of Students Office to set up a meeting with the Student Advocacy Specialist if they have encountered student behavior that is causing concern via:
- Lab areas
- Field sites
- Discussion boards
- Online meeting spaces
- Audio-video and conferencing
The Student Advocacy Specialist will act promptly to follow-up with the individual initiating the report; determine if there have been any additional warning signs or reasons for concern, and meet with the student to develop a plan. Our approach will be from a growth and coaching space with the intent of preventing the behavior from escalating into a formal conduct violation.
Actions taken by the Student Advocacy Specialist could include the following:
- Meeting with the student to discuss behavior of concern and advising the student of possible consequences if behavior is not corrected to comply with college rules and classroom expectations.
- Talking with the faculty or staff member who reported the conduct to discuss how to respond and to share information, resources, and tools that may help in the situation.
- Sharing information with the college safety team or CARE Team to determine whether there have been any previous contacts or concerns and to assess further action.
