Angela Harris, assistant dean of students and case manager at Davidson, has worked in higher education for more than 13 years, providing support, counsel, diversity training, mentoring, advocacy, crisis intervention and case management to college students. She provides support and counsel using a solution-focused approach to assist with student success and retention. She also assists students as they navigate resources available through Davidson and local communities to foster growth, empowerment and resiliency to overcome barriers to success.
Today, Harris shares information about ways to report a concern about a Davidson student. We hope our Wildcat Parents find this of interest and use.
Reporting a Concern about Your Student
Did you know that if you have a concern about your student that you could alert the Dean of Students Office? A “Student of Concern” form can be completed by any Davidson College faculty member, staff member, student, parent/relative or community member. The form is intended to provide information to the Dean of Students Office about a student who may be exhibiting behaviors that are of concern in relation to their personal, physical and emotional well-being. Reporting a concern shortly after an issue is raised or incident has occurred can help with early intervention and success.
Student of Concern reports are managed through the Student of Concern Committee. This committee meets weekly to provide a means for early intervention of at-risk students through collaboration with campus departments, faculty, staff and, when necessary, off-campus referrals and resources. The committee is comprised of a key team of professionals from the Dean of Students Office, Academic Affairs, Counseling and Health Services, Disability Services, Residence Life, Campus Police and Religious Life.
If you have any questions, please contact the Dean of Students Office at 704-894-2225. You may also contact Harris directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 704-894-2976.
