How to Help Students In Distress

Southeastern is committed to our students’ academic success and to providing the necessary resources to enhance the potential for their success. The Lion Intervention Network (LINK) is another way we can do just that – help students succeed. Developed to identify students who are facing academic challenges and/or personal hardship (i.e. financial, homelessness/displacement, loss of loved one, car accidents, non-life threatening behaviors, etc.)  that are hindering their academics. LINK can connect students with any extra help they might need along their educational paths to success. 

With your help, students can receive assistance with resources such as academic advising, personal counseling services, workshops, and campus involvement. To report click the "Report" tab above or visit southeastern.edu/link

 

What happens when a LINK report is submitted? 

For academic concerns, an OSAA staff member will make attempts to contact the student and recommend resources appropriate for the situation. For first and second semester freshman students, an OSAA staff member will also reach out to the Center for Student Excellence to connect with their advisor. 

For personal/social concerns, an OSAA staff member will make attempts to contact the student to assess the nature of the concern and connect the student to appropriate resources including Counseling, Disability Services, Tutoring, various offices on campus and/or community resources. Some referrals involve more than one resource and the Office of Student Advocacy and Accountability will work collaboratively to address complex concerns with colleagues across campus. 

For emergency financial assistance concerns, an OSAA staff member will make attempts to contact the student to assess the nature of the concern and connect the student to available financial resources. 

For tuition/fee concerns, an OSAA staff member will forward the report to the Office of Financial Aid for review.
