Please send an email to [email protected], and list the subject as "Concerned About A Student". Please be aware this email is NOT monitored 24/7.

Alternatively, an online report of a variety of behavioral concerns can be submitted to the office of Student Rights & Accountability. These online reports can be submitted at any time, and are monitored during business hours.
