What is the Student Care Group? 

The Student Care Group is here to help you and the student; it is a cross-departmental committee that meets regularly to discuss, assess, and manage cases when a student exhibits concerning behavior. The group is the centralized body that receives reports of student concern – related to student wellbeing, safety, and/or success – and works together to thoughtfully and holistically support the student.

If you are an NU employee or student who is concerned about a student, please complete the report form via Bridge to notify the student care group of your concern.
