Student Assistance Information for Parents
How can my student report a student concern?
For non-emergency student concern referrals, students can report concerns through the Starfish Icon (In the case of an emergency, please call 911 and campus police at 410-386-8123. Starfish is the primary channel to complete a Student Concern Report by selecting ‘Report a Student Concern’).
Alternatively, students can also submit a, Student Concern & Incident Report Form, which is another channel to complete a Student Concern Report if they do not have access to Starfish. Another option is the ‘Report Student Concern’ icon, which can be accessed from any college computer desktop.
This is a proactive approach to provide cross-campus support/response to students who are experiencing personal challenges that may hinder their academic success or well-being.
The report goes directly to the Office of Student Care and Integrity for a response within 48 hours. For use by students, faculty or staff.
Students may contact the Director of Student Care and Integrity/Chair of the Behavioral Intervention Team, Dr. DaVida Anderson, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-386-8217 for any questions or further assistance.

With TimelyCare’s Self-Care Journey, students have 24/7/365 access to short videos, interactive guides, and articles from experts on topics such as managing stress, relationships, and healthy eating.
