Our Goal is Student Success.
Early Alert provides individual support and guidance to students who may be struggling with the college experience or other life challenges. These issues include:
- Trouble Making Friends
- Substance Abuse
- Housing Concerns
- Family Issues
- Financial Concerns
The main goal of Early Alert Services is to help students to be successful at URI through individual guidance and the collaboration of campus resources. We reach out to students to help devise a strategy to address any issues that they may need assistance with. Students may continue to meet with our staff on a regular basis, be referred to other services or offices on campus, or decide that they have received sufficient information after the first meeting.
Faculty, staff, peers, and family members play a vital role in student success. As you notice students struggling academically, socially, or personally, it is important to refer these students to Early Alert for assistance. Students are welcomed and encouraged to contact the office directly as well.
Referrals may be done via referral form, telephone, email, or in person. Referrals to Early Alert may be kept anonymous.
