Students of Concern

Student of Concern Review Team (SCRT)

Purpose: Encourage early identification of individuals who may be experiencing difficulty coping with their environment or life circumstance. The interventions are determined case by case.  See the SCRT Visual Response Chart for more info.

Submitted CARE Reports will be reviewed and referred to the most appropriate office for follow-up.  This may or may not involve SCRT.


Signs that it’s more than everyday stress:

To help identify students who may be under undue stress below are some possible warning signs that indicate a student may need assistance.

  • A significant change in appearance (e.g., poor hygiene, weight gain/loss)
  • A substantial drop in academic performance
  • Distracted or preoccupied thought processes
  • Withdrawal from social interactions with peers, family, and significant others
  • Frequent class absences
  • Expressions of loneliness or fear, such as avoidance or apprehension about being alone, and
  • Occurrence of a recent loss or other crisis (e.g., relationship breakup, death of a friend or family member, academic failure, physical illness, sexual violence)
  • Expressions of hopelessness (statements such as "there's no use trying" or "what's the point?")
  • Indirect statements or written essays about death or suicide

Help us feed hungry Jayhawks.  If we meet our fundraising goal of $25,000, we’ll be able to provide 5,000 meals to KU students.  Because when you feel well, you do well.  And you can’t feel well if you are not getting enough quality food to eat.
