Early intervention is a key way to help retain at-risk students experiencing academic, financial, social or personal issues. And you’re a big part of that intervention process, as campus eyes and ears.

Your observations about a student being  hungry, anxious, struggling financially, grieving a relationship or dealing with family issues make a difference. Talk with the appropriate people about your concerns: a supervisor, an advisor, a behavioral intervention team, a counselor, etc. Intervention can then occur in a caring, compassionate way that best serves that student.

If you notice something, say something.
