Examples of Concerning Behavior

Immediate Threat of Violence or Significant Disruption

If a student is acting in a violent manner or threatening immediate violence to self or others, contact Public Safety at 610.902.8111.*

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


If you believe a student is experiencing a medical crisis, contact 911 or Health Services.


If a student is frequently missing class and not responding to your outreach, or if a student appears disengaged from class and is not responsive to your show of concern, a referral to the CARE team is appropriate.

Emotional or Psychological Distress

When a student shows signs of emotional or psychological distress, Counseling & Psychological Services provides comprehensive evaluation and treatment.

Disorderly or Disruptive Behavior

If a student is exhibiting behavior that is disorderly or disruptive, without the intent to harm self or others, faculty/staff should first address the student to stop the disruptive behavior. This should be done privately and not in public. If the disruptive behavior continues, please report this behavior to the Dean of Students via a CARE Team email.

These students may be in violation of the University’s Community Standards and/or may be referred for other interventions.

Severe Disruptive and Threatening Behavior

A “threat” is defined as any behavior which suggests an intent to harm someone.

Threats may be spoken, written, electronic (including posted to social networking sites) or expressed in some other manner (e.g., through gestures).

Threats can be made directly to an intended victim, communicated through third parties, or expressed in private settings.

Possession of a weapon is presumed to indicate a threat.
