Why Make a Referral

Centralized reporting

Our office receives reports from all over campus. What may seem like an insignificant concern to you lets us see a much richer picture of what may be happening for a student. Every piece of information matters and is helpful in providing a greater level of support for the students involved.

Early intervention

We believe in the principles of early intervention and proactive engagement and as such, we prefer to intervene at the earliest and lowest level possible. Earlier interventions preserve a wider range of options for students. Late interventions may result in a more significant impact on a student’s experience and progress towards degree.

Assistance for you

It is helpful to know you are not alone in managing a difficult situation. When you make a referral, we are always available to talk through the situation with you and help you determine the best way to proceed. You do not have to manage these situations by yourself.

It is your responsibility

UIC is a community and we all have a responsibility to care for each other. We all want our students to be healthy and successful. Referring students is one way you can help support the health and success of all UIC students, and make sure nobody slips through the cracks
