Make a Report to the Office of Student Life

This report function is a way for families, friends, former mentors, and others who love and care about our students to let us know when they see that their student is struggling or when something happens at home that may impact their student on campus. Often, you will have information that we could use to help strategize and connect to help our students be as successful as possible. We thank you for sharing information with us and partnering with us to work towards our students health, well-being, and success.

Faculty should report concerns through the Student Success Alert form on Panther Portal.

Filing a report is NOT appropriate if the student or situation requires immediate attention or there is an emergency of any kind. Instead, please call 911 or the Ferrum College Police Department at (540) 365-4444.

Important Additional Information

If a current student poses a threat of harm to self or others, please call the Ferrum College Police Department immediately at (540) 365-4444.

Reports will be reviewed within one (1) business day; however, these reports are not reviewed outside of business hours (Monday – Friday 9:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m.) or during holiday breaks.

Once the report has been reviewed, a clearly defined level of protocol is used to determine the most appropriate steps.

We will follow up with the person(s) who submit reports only when additional information is needed.

If you have submitted a report and have more information to share or questions, please call us at (540) 365-4461.
