Student Care & Concern

Student Concern System

As a primary resource within the Dean of Students’ Office, the Student Concern System is a resource designed for all members of the Belmont University community to use to report non-emergency concerns about a student’s health or safety. The Dean of Students’ Office encourages all Belmont faculty, staff and students to utilize the student concern system to share your concern, large or small. Professional staff will assist in identifying the type of concern and connect students of concern to helpful resources on an as needed basis.

Campus Members Responsibilities

It is the responsibility of faculty, staff and students to immediately report any situation that could possibly result in harm to anyone at the University.
