How does Early Alert help faculty?

Early Alert is available for faculty and staff during the fall and spring semesters to identify areas of academic concern for undergraduate students. The system is designed to provide faculty and staff with a way to connect with campus constituents in order to best support students in these areas:

  • Difficulty comprehending course material
  • Poor performance on exams or assignments
  • Poor class attendance
  • Missing assignments
Is the Early Alert appropriate to utilize regarding other non-academic related concerns?

Early Alert is not an appropriate method of communication for concerns regarding student's mental health or safety.

If you are concerned about the immediate safety of an individual or the safety of others, please call 9-1-1.

Mental health resources are available for faculty and staff members through the Step Up Speak Out initiative.

If a student is experiencing difficulties and you think they may benefit from a referral to a mental health professional you may consult with or refer the student to:

Psychological Services is the primary counseling unit for students on campus but the other two clinics are options as well; the other two clinics are not set up to assist students in crisis.

If you are concerned about a student's behavior beyond  traditional work hours (Monday-Friday 8am-5pm)  and feel someone should talk with the student at that time, call 330-672-2212 (non-emergency number for KSU Police) to report the behavior and an officer will follow up.
