Concerns about Student Behavior

While instances of Cabrini students engaging in disruptive, threatening, or violent behavior are rare, circumstances may arise that cause concern among our students, faculty, or staff.

Concerns often stem from behavior, both in or outside of the classroom, that might be considered odd or out of the ordinary.

Examples of such behavior include students who:

  • frequently miss class and are not responding to your emails;
  • are at risk of failing a course or not progressing;
  • may be abusing alcohol or drugs;
  • have been acting inappropriately, exhibiting ongoing unprofessional behavior, or have been threatening in any way;
  • have had a sudden change in behavior, quality of work, or mood;
  • have an acute illness or chronic health issues;
  • appear disengaged from class or are ill-prepared for academic success;
  • have made suicidal statements or expressed severe depression*;
  • are dealing with family issues or complicated bereavement.

If you are concerned that a students is going to harm themselves or others, contact Public Safety immediately at 610.902.8111.*

*Please note, calls received without caller ID enabled cannot be connected to the Cabrini Dispatcher.
