Report and Support

If you are reporting an emergency that involves imminent risk of harm to self or others, please call 911 or campus security 269-470-6084 prior to completing this report.

We appreciate your partnership in supporting campus wellness. By submitting a report, you are helping us maintain a healthy and safe campus community. Join us in taking care of our community by creating a culture of reporting.

This page serves as a guide to assist LMC community members in choosing the correct reporting form to share their concerns, in order to ensure efficient and effective response from the CARE Team. The CARE Team (Coordination, Assistance, Response, and Education) is a team of faculty and staff who screen the incoming reports and provide timely intervention and support.

These forms are NOT intended for emergency response. In case of emergency, imminent risk, or threat of violence please call 911 or Campus Safety at (269) 470-6084. Completing any of the reports below does not substitute contacting Campus Safety or the police.

Submitted referral forms are processed during normal business hours and are not monitored after hours, on weekends, or during college closures. 

If you have any questions about completing a report, please contact the Executive Director of Intercollegiate Athletics and Campus Life at 269-927-8763.

If the student is unable to take care of themselves or is under the influence of a substance then immediately call 9-1-1. 

If there is suspected substance abuse or misuse or the student shares that they are struggling with substance abuse or misuse, please submit a Care and Concern Report.

Talk with the student directly. Find out if they are unable to understand the content or if something else is impacting their learning.  

Encourage the student to seek out services through various LMC academic resources.  

Referral can be submitted for student concerns related to academic progress through the EAB Navigate system.

Students interrupting frequently, not being thoughtful of other students, or being a distraction generally is not a violation of the Student Code of Conduct. If the student’s behavior becomes hostile (verbal and/or physical), please submit a Student Code of Conduct Violation Report. If the immediate situation becomes violent or aggressive, this is an EMERGENCY SITUATION – CALL 9-1-1 and Campus Safety at (269) 470-6084. 

Use these low-level disruptive behaviors as an opportunity to build rapport and communication clear and specific boundaries in the context of classroom behavior. While you take the time to have this conversation with the student, if you learn of other factors in their life resulting in this behavior, submit a Care and Concern Report, so staff can follow-up with the student and share support and resources. 

Encourage the student to seek help from the LMC Counseling Office.

Encourage the student to think about some of their interests/hobbies and look at the various ways to get involved through LMC Student Clubs. The next time you see the student, check in with them again to see if their feelings have resolved.

If you feel outreach is appropriate, submit a Care and Concern Report so that our CARE Team can follow-up with the student to offer support and services.

 

Stress, anxiety, and feelings of depression are normal feelings that all of us experience at times. If a student shares with you that they are stressed, anxious, or depressed be supportive and validating to the student. Perhaps ask them what is causing them to feel this way and talk with them about how they could cope with their stress. Encourage them to find some effective ways to address their feelings (organization, exercise, asking for help, or sharing with a trusted friend). 

If the student shares that they are experiencing stress, anxiety, or depression and indicate it is impairing normal daily functioning, encourage the student to seek help from the LMC Counseling Office.  

If you feel follow-up is needed, after talking with the student, please submit a Care and Concern Report so that our CARE Team can follow-up with the student to offer support and resources. 

Encourage the student to reach out to the LMC Counseling Office.

If the student has communicated a specific plan to harm themselves or others, this is an EMERGENCY SITUATION – CALL 9-1-1. 

Then follow up by completing a Care and Concern Report so that our CARE Team can follow up with the student after they get the immediate medical and safety care required.  

Encourage the student to reach out to the LMC Counseling Office.  

Let the student know you are grateful they felt comfortable sharing this information with you. Also, let the student know you will need to share this information with the Title IX Coordinator, so that they can be offered additional support and services.  

Submit a report to the LMC Title IX Coordinator either online at Title IX Report or by contacting the Vice President of Student Affairs Office at (269) 927-8752.

First, contact the student directly. Send them an email to let them know you are concerned and would like to meet with them.  

If the student is not responsive to your outreach attempts, you can submit a notification via EAB Navigate.

If you are worried about the student’s overall personal, physical, mental/emotional wellbeing, please submit a Care and Concern Report so the CARE Team can follow up and connect the student to support and resources.
