If this is an immediate emergency (day or night) dial 911. 

The purpose of the U of A Cares site is to encourage and allow members of the University community to refer students that are exhibiting signs of distress in their academic, personal, financial life or other areas.

Based on the information provided, the appropriate professional staff will be assembled to aid in addressing the concern in a comprehensive, efficient, and effective manner. This allows us to establish a system of collaborative care and concern.
The U of A Cares program is an early alert/warning system that is activated to assist a student in distress. The members of the team are comprised of faculty and staff from academic and student affairs that may be best situated to make contact with, assist, and provide the necessary access to support that a student requires.  Referrals can come from faculty, staff, parents other students or the student in need. The U of A Cares team can assist with issues such as, but not limited to             

  • deaths
  • illnesses
  • class attendance issues
  • financial matters
  • adjustment issues
  • scholarship concern
  • referrals

Through this approach we seek to empower students to take advantage of the offices and services that exist on the University of Arkansas campus in a manner that allows them to achieve their full potential.
