For Faculty and Staff
How to connect your student to our office:
You may be in a position to refer your student to a CECI advisor. Please visit our staff page to learn about which advisors cover the major in question. Also, please review the best practices listed below by major as you guide your student toward advising support.
If you would like more information about how to best support students, please contact Breeann Mann, Director or the general office contact information located in the bottom banner of our website. If you think your student needs additional resources, please visit the Student Resources list on the Division of Student Affairs website
Issue An Alert
The advising center encourages CECI faculty to voluntarily refer a student who may be struggling with attendance or other academic concerns. You can do so by Issuing an Alert through EAB - Navigate. Detailed instructions are available one the EAB - Navigate homepage: www.gvsu.edu/navigate under "Resources".
If a student is experiencing a more urgent or personal concern, including but not limited to: concerns for well-being, financial or basic needs, physical and mental health, and disruptive/disturbing behavior, please use the Student of Concern CARE Report, managed by the Dean of Students Office. The CARE Team (Coordination, Assistance, Response, and Education) is a team of staff who support all students through challenges they may experience during their time at GVSU. Please complete a CARE Referral if you are a student in need of support, know a student who needs support, or are generally concerned about a student.
IF YOUR CONCERN INVOLVES AN IMMEDIATE SAFETY RISK TO SELF OR OTHERS, PLEASE STOP AND CALL 911.
