Student of
Concern
 
Care Team
Support

The Office of Student Affairs is committed to the health, safety, and success of each of our students. We prioritize this commitment through our Care team, who supports Students of Concern (SOC).

The Care Team serves as a dispatch and case management team for students who are going through a difficult time due to various life circumstances including but not limited to, their academic progress and behavior, overall wellbeing, basic needs, and conflict resolution. If you know of a student who falls into this criteria please complete a Care team referral for the Student of Concern through My.Naropa.edu (instructions in the sidebar).

The Care team is not an emergency response team. Please call 911 in the case of an emergency and/or campus Security & Safety 720-309-8211, then put in a Student of Concern alert.

Please note, the Care team follow-up strategies, outreaches and outcomes are confidential and generally will not be shared, except on a need-to-known-basis. Student information and their educational records are protected under the FERPA. Thank you for understanding, and supporting our students.

  • Go to My.Naropa.edu and log-in with your employee credentials.
  • Scroll to the "Quick Links" section. This is on the left-hand side of the page if you are viewing from a web browser.

The current global situation is giving us all an opportunity to bring our fears, anxiety, and concerns to our daily mindfulness practice. Following the instructions we have all been given regarding maintaining health through social distancing, diet and exercise are important to follow.

Appreciating that we are all connected and realizing that the stability, sanity and openness of our own state of being contributes to the well-being of everyone. Therefore we can begin by being gentle and kind with ourselves and extending the energy of loving kindness to all beings, close and far away.
