Refer a Concern


UWYO Cares

Click to refer a concern using the online form

The University of Wyoming is focused on helping students achieve their goals and supporting students during their academic journey. We understand students are often navigating challenges which prevent them from fully engaging in their academic work or with the campus community. 

The UWYO Cares Team is a University of Wyoming multi-disciplinary team responsible for assessing, responding to and evaluating the safety and welfare of student who may present concerns of any nature. Families, students, faculty and staff are encouraged to refer concerns about a student's health, wellbeing, security and/or academic success to the team.

When you refer a student to the UWYO Cares Team, you are informing the Dean of Students Office that you have seen or heard something regarding that student that causes you to be concerned. The Dean of Students Office will work with our partners, including the University Police Department, the University Counseling Center, Residential Life, Student Health, Stop Violence Program and our Welfare Coordinator, to contact and support the student.

The information that is shared via the online form is considered part of the educational records for the student, governed by FERPA. You may choose to identify yourself on the form or stay anonymous. Please understand that if you choose to limit the information you share, UWyo Cares may be limited in the help and support it can provide.

Your referral may be the activating event that helps the student get connected to appropriate campus resources, or you may be providing supplemental information about a student that assists in our ability to more appropriately reach out to support the student.

UWYO Cares Team members shall have a duty to protect confidential and/or sensitive information which is disclosed about students as part of the behavioral intervention team process. The UWYO Cares Team members shall limit disclosure of information to within the UWYO Cares Team and/or employees having a need to know in order to care for the student.
