How anonymous or confidential is a CCS?
We believe that transparency and privacy are critical. When you reach out to a student,
you're letting them know what you notice and that you have a concern. By asking them
how they're doing, you can also find out if there's any way you can help.
We have the utmost respect for a student's privacy and will maintain it to the highest
degree possible. Information is shared on a need-to-know basis and only to the extent
necessary for those who are directly involved in supporting the student, so they can
do so as effectively as possible in order to fulfill their professional responsibilty.
Where there is a concern for the health or safety of a member of the Brescia community,
or the threat of physical harm, privacy laws do not prohibit, but encourage, the appropriate
and necessary sharing of that information to maintain a safe campus community.
Submitting a concern does not affect a student's academic records, or decisions related
to funding or academic progress and/or future involvement in activities. A student
always has the choice whether or not they would like to accept help or not, with the
exception of someone’s safety at risk.
The Care Program is not about surveillance and/or is not meant to be disciplinary.
The goal is to provide students with relevant resources and support as early as possible,
so that they are better able to reach their academic and personal goals.
