Be Proactive and Tap into Available Resources!

Early intervention is essential to supporting students in need. We strongly encourage members of our community to share concerns and make referrals as soon as possible.


Make A Referral Or Report A Concern

Administrator On-Call (AOC)

An Administrator is On-Call (AOC) 24hrs a day – 7 days a week.

To confer with or report an urgent concern to the AOC, please call Campus Safety at (860) 297-2222. Emergency or urgent situations can be directly related to a student’s life on campus, and/or related to their home/family life.

The AOC can contact the student(s) of concern to check on their well-being and can offer guidance. In some situations, it may be difficult to fully address the situation and take necessary action until the next business day.

Students, staff, faculty, and parents/families should contact Campus Safety for urgent or emergency matters. 

Care & Wellness Referral

  • Students can submit a Care & Wellness Referral to self-refer or refer peers they believe may need support, guidance, or other interventions
  • Parents/guardians, staff, or faculty can submit a Care & Wellness Referral to refer students they believe are in need of support, guidance, or other interventions.

Challenges/struggles may include, but are not limited to: homesickness, personal loss, academic concerns, mental health concerns, eating disorder, lack of engagement, or roommate conflict. 

Community Concern Report

  • Students, staff, or faculty who witness or experience incidents that cause them grave concern and which they believe have violated Trinity College policy can complete and submit a report.
  • Parents/guardians who have knowledge of, or have been made aware of incidents by their student can submit a report to the Campus Safety at (860) 297-2222 or to the Office of Student & Community Life at (860) 297-2156 or email [email protected].

Incidents may include, but are not limited to: vandalism, hazing, housing violation, or misconduct carried out by student(s), other community member(s), or visiting guests.

Care & Wellness Referral

Once submitted, the referring party will receive an email receipt, confirming the submission of the referral. Based on the reason for the referral an administrator or staff member within the Office of Student and Community Life will:

  • Formulate an appropriate response and reach out to the student of concern to have a supportive conversation and offer some guidance on how to move forward.
  • Connect the student in need with other resources on campus, including the Health Center or Counseling and Wellness Center.

If necessary, an administrator or staff member within the Office of Student and Community Life may:

  • Follow-up with the the individual who submitted the referral for additional information.
  • Coordinate with other campus partners and/or parents to help connect the student with additional supportive resources.

The issue will be considered resolved if no other concerns are presented.

Community Concern Report

Once submitted, the reporting party will receive an email receipt, confirming the submission of the referral.

  • An administrator or staff member within the Office of Student and Community Life may contact the reporting party and the individuals identifed in the report to gather more information.

Depending on the concern, Campus Safety or an administrator or staff member within Office of Student and Community Life will conduct an initial inquiry and determine the appropriate course of action, which may include a meeting with the reporting community member and the parties involved in the incident.

  • If necessary, follow-up will be done with the parties involved, including the reporting party. If no other concerns are presented, the issue will be considered resolved.

For more information about our policies and expectations, please read the Student Handbook and visit the Community Standards Resolution Process page to learn more about our resolution process.

Completing the Forms

When completing the forms, please be as thorough, specific and objective as possible.

While anonymous reports are permitted, we strongly encourage individuals to identify themselves when submitting a referral or reporting a concern. Our intervention can be much more effective when the student understands the origination of the report including the name of the person sharing the concern.

Review of Submissions

Submissions are reviewed by the Office of Student and Community during normal business hours. Once received, we will acknowledge the submission and may contact the reporter for additional information. Depending on the level of concern, submissions may receive a response within three (3) to five (5) business days.

  • Contact Campus Safety at (860) 297-2222 if you are concerned about a student who is exhibiting higher-level signs of substance use, self-harm, or threatening to harm to others.
  • Contact the Office of Student and Community Life at (860) 297-2156 or via email at [email protected], if you have questions or concerns, or would like to speak with a staff member regarding your concerns.

Care & Wellness Referral

When facing challenges/struggles, students can sometimes find it difficult to ask for help. The Care & Wellness Referral can be used to refer a student in need of guidance or other intervention, to the Office of Student and Community Life.


Community Concern Report

We encourage students, faculty, or staff who witnessed or experienced incidents which they believe have violated Trinity College policy to complete and submit a Community Concern Report.

Additional Referral & Reporting Resources

Report Bias Incidents Or Hate Crimes​

The Campus Climate Incident Response Team seeks to promote inclusion and equity through its focus on the Trinity community’s response to incidents of intolerance and other incidents that offend our highest community values.

Report Concerns To Campus Safety

In our community, we share a responsibility to foster a safe living, learning, and working environment. We encourage all members of our community to report crimes and incidents that violate our college policies.

Reporting Alcohol and or Substance Abuse Incidents

Trinity College values the general welfare of our students. We recognize and acknowledge that their daily decisions impact their success both in and out of the classroom. As a result, we promote a community of care, one in which students are encouraged to be attentive to the wellness, health, and safety of Trinity community members in addition to their own.

In an effort to further promote a community of care, the college encourages bystanders, and when possible, students who are facing a medical or mental health crisis, including a Title IX related incident due to the consumption of alcohol and/or drugs, to take responsible action and seek immediate assistance. In these instances, students are encouraged to seek assistance without fear of disciplinary action as outlined in Trinity’s Drug Use and Alcohol Provision and Use policies. Students can seek assistance from:

  • Campus Safety
  • A Resident Advisor or Residential Learning Coordinator
  • Other College administrators, staff, or faculty

Under appropriate circumstances, as described in the amnesty policies below, college sanctions regarding alcohol and drug use may not apply.

Please see the Student Handbook for more information on these policies.

Report Title IX Incidents

Compliance with Title IX is a community-wide responsibility. We encourage all community members to report Title IX related incidents.
