Resources for Faculty

Starfish gives you a convenient way to provide feedback to students.  You can raise a flag when you observe a pattern of behavior that concerns you, which ensures that the people on campus who can intervene are aware and can reach out to the student.

Starfish also allows your students to easily book an appointment with you or someone else who can help.
