Student Assistance Information

The Assistant Vice President for Identity, Health, & Wellness provides assistance and support for students who are away from the campus for a minimum of three class days due to illness, personal or family emergencies. A note will be circulated to the student's professors advising the professor of the absence. The student is also encouraged to contact his/her professors to make arrangements on any missed work.

To utilize this service, the student or family member completes the Request Instructor Notification for Absences Form and also submits additional documentation relating to the reason for absence. In some cases, if a student is unable to return to one or more of their classes, the Student Assistance Team can be helpful in determining the best course of action. Students or family members should contact the office at 610-436-0165 to discuss their options.

For other incidents or behaviors of concerns, the Assistant Vice President works in conjunction with the CARE Team to provide outreach to students when concerns for their health, welfare and safety are identified. Please complete the Concerning Incident or Behavior Form to provide notification to the Assistant Vice President.

If you have any questions, please call Christy Lanshe at 610-436-0165.
If the situation is an emergency, please call Public Safety at 610-436-3311.
