Transitioning to distance learning may have been a fairly easy leap for your student. For others, it may have resulted in new challenges to conquer. These challenges may include academic concerns, mental or physical health concerns, as well as external factors affecting the student such as financial or family matters. We are here to help.
The NWU CARE Team (Concern, Assessment, Response, Education) consists of university administrators and staff who coordinate resources to assist students to get back on their feet. There are a few ways that you can help us help your student:
- If your student is contacted by an outreach coordinator, please encourage them to respond. Even if they feel they have a handle on things. The intent is always to understand and assist, not punish.
- If your student expresses concern for themselves, or others, they can self-report to ask for assistance here (using their regular NWU username and password).
- If you are concerned about your student, or another student, you can submit a referral here.
In regular semesters and times of crisis, Nebraska Wesleyan is invested in students’ academic success, personal growth, and well-being. Thank you so much for partnering with us in supporting them!
