I'm Concerned About a Student

Dean of Students Care Team @ WPI


The WPI Care Team was established to receive, consider and, when appropriate, act upon information or behavior(s) of concern exhibited by a student or group of students.

The Dean of Students Office coordinates the group of professional staff that meet weekly (during the academic year) to address the safety, welfare and academic success of students. The WPI Care Team includes representatives from across the institution, with a focus on reaching out to students whose behavior has (in some way) come to the attention of others. The Team then determines a plan of action (if deemed appropriate and needed) that are in the best interest of the student and the campus community.

We encourage faculty, staff, student or parental response to behavior that may be classified as:

  • Distressed Behavior – the most common, distressed behavior causes us to feel alarmed, upset or worried.
  • Disruptive Behavior – behavior that interferes or disrupts the educational environment of other students or the normal academic functions of the university.
  • Dangerous Behavior – behavior that causes one to feel frightened and/or in fear of one's personal safety or the safety of others.

This is not a system to use for emergencies.

In case of an emergency, regardless of time of day, where a student's well-being is in jeopardy, please contact Campus Police at +1-508-831-5433.

Please complete this on-line form using detailed examples of behavior that cause your concern. This form will be sent directly to the Dean of Students Office. You may be contacted for additional information or clarification if needed. If you are concerned about a student, but do not wish to submit your concern(s) through this form, please contact the Dean of Students Office directly at 508-831-5201.
