The Gateway Community & Technical Colleges Care Team supports Gateway's overall goal to provide a safe and supportive environment by facilitating a See Something, Say Something culture at the college. The Care Team responds to reports of individuals who present disruptive or concerning behavior. We coordinate resources and respond with the goal of providing assistance to the individual while reducing potential risk in an effort to keep the Gateway community healthy and safe.
Report a Concern
Alternative method for reporting:
Leave a voice message at 859-815-1122 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A report may be completed anonymously by omitting your name and contact information from the online form. You should be aware, however, that this may restrict the CARE Teams ability to respond.
A person of concern is any individual who demonstrates disruptive or disturbing behavior, personal difficulties, mental and/or emotional instability, or otherwise causes another member of the campus community to feel distress.
Persons of concern are reported to the Care Team, whose goal is to take a proactive approach to help our College maintain a safe and supportive community.
The CARE Team encourages everyone to use the online form whenever possible. If you are leaving a voice message or sending an email, to the extent possible, please try to provide the following information:
A description/narration of what happened using the Five Ws:
- Who: Who was involved? Multiple persons? Witnesses?
- What: What happened? Details of observation?
- When: When did the event occur? Date/Time?
- Where: Where did the event take place?
- Why: Did something else happen leading to the event?
Depending upon the situation, immediate action may be taken. The CARE Team reviews the report, collects additional information as needed, makes a determination for a plan of action and follows up.
The CARE Team can provide additional resources and individualized help to those who are experiencing difficulties. This support is beneficial to both the individual and the campus community. Your report to the CARE Team can make a difference.
Select information will be provided to the person making the report depending upon the situation, confidentiality, FERPA, and other legal considerations.
