ECU Cares - Person of Concern

Behaviors of Concern

Some individuals will exhibit behaviors that interfere with their academic, career or personal success, but are not likely to indicate a risk to life and safety. Examples of behaviors of concern might include:

  • Frequent class absences
  • Difficulty adjusting to college life
  • Significant time management / procrastination issues
  • Falling asleep in class
  • Changes in appearance or personal hygiene
  • Uncooperative

What to do: Often you can help students exhibiting such behaviors by asking some basic questions, listening, giving basic advice and making referrals to campus resources to help them. If the student needs more support than you can provide, you may report students of concern to ECU Cares or by calling 252-737-5555.  Additionally, you can make a referral to the Center for Counseling and Student Development (252-328-6661) or to the Dean of Students (252-328-9297) as appropriate. Some students may benefit from a referral for academic assistance (i.e., advising, tutoring or through the associate dean within an academic college).  

For faculty or staff exhibiting similar behaviors, again ask some basic questions, listen, give basic advice and make referrals to community or campus resources.  Suggesting that the faculty or staff member contact their supervisor or their human resources representative for assistance may be appropriate.  Additionally, if the faculty or staff member needs more support than you can provide, you may report individuals of concern to ECU Cares or by calling 252-737-5555.
