If this is an immediate emergency (day or night) dial 911.
U of A Cares was implemented to encourage and allow members of the community to refer students that are exhibiting signs of distress in their academic, personal, financial life or other areas. Faculty, staff, family members, and fellow students may report a concern at any time.
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 team can assist with issues such as, but not limited to:
- the passing of a friend or family member
- financial matters
- adjustment issues
- mental health concerns
- scholarship concerns
By providing referrals, resources, and other information to students in need we seek to empower students to take advantage of the offices and services that exist on the University of Arkansas campus and in the local community in a manner that allows them to achieve their full potential. If you or someone you know may benefit from this service please report a concern through our online reporting system (available 24 hours), or via phone or email (checked during business hours with the exception of holidays or inclement weather).
For Non-Immediate threats call the University of Arkansas Police Department at (479)575-2222.
