Office of Student Advocacy - FAQ
Who can make a referral?
Anyone who feels a student is a threat to themselves and/or the community can make a referral; including students, parents, faculty and staff, and other community members.
What happens after a referral is made?
The Office of Student Advocacy receives the referral and takes the information and makes a decision regarding the best referral option to address the presenting issue. However, reporting is the most critical step. Please complete the electronic referral form to submit a report. Refer to the Resources page to find contact information and explanations on how these departments can assist you.
When are incident reports read and responded to?
Please be aware that incident reports are received and addressed during business hours Monday through Friday 8am - 5pm. Reports made outside of business hours will be addressed the following business day.
How do I know if it is a referral issue or if it is more appropriately handled by other campus resources?
You don't have to make this determination, the Office of Student Advocacy will do it for you. The most critical step is that you report it. If another campus resource is more appropriate, the OSA will refer the student and handle the transfer of information.
