Person of Concern Policy
The participating universities in the Great Plains IDEA are committed to the health and well-being of all students, faculty, and staff members and addressing the needs of persons of concern in a timely and effective manner.
Who is a Person of Concern?
A person of concern is any student, faculty, or staff member whose behavior may impact their ability or the ability of others to be successful in the university or online learning environment.
Well-being plays an important role in the success of all students taking courses through Great Plains IDEA, as well as all faculty and staff members who work within the alliance. When someone is concerned about the actions or behavior of a student, faculty, or staff member, the members of the alliance agree to the following procedures.
- The student, faculty, or staff member with a concern should contact the person’s home university department chair or the lead institution.
- The home university department chair should then follow their home university policy, whether that be contacting the Office of Student Life, appropriate office/department, or the university’s human resources.
- The home university department chair should confirm with the initiating faculty, staff member, or student that a report has been filed and someone has been in contact with the person of concern.
