The Salem State Student Wellness CARE team reviews and responds to care and concern reports. This can include students who exhibit agitated behavior, references to violence or self-harm, or significant emotional distress. It can also include students who need referrals to resources and are facing challenges that impact their wellbeing and student success.

Once the form is received, the team will review the information and take appropriate action, which can include outreach to the student, referrals to resources, and following up with the reporter if more information is necessary.

Please note: this is not an emergency response team, and action may not be taken on the same day it is submitted. If you have any questions related to completing this form, please email the CARE team.

Salem State strives to both increase the diversity within our campus community and to create a welcoming environment for all members. We unequivocally denounce acts of bias or hate and pledge to respond in ways that reinforce our values, prioritize education and pursue personal accountability. The university defines a bias incident as any act, conduct or communication that reasonably is understood to demean, degrade, threaten or harass an individual or group based on an actual or perceived characteristic. Community members who witness or experience bias are encouraged to notify the university.

Report a bias incident. To learn more, contact our chief diversity and inclusion officer, Christopher MacDonald-Dennis, VP of Inclusive Excellence.

The Student Conduct Code identifies expectations for student behavior both on and off campus. If you feel that a student has violated a university policy, you are encouraged to submit a report.

Submit a violation report. The report will be reviewed for possible disciplinary action. You may be contacted to provide further information about your report.

Individuals should report incidents of academic dishonesty following the Academic Integrity Regulations. Violations of the Academic Integrity Regulations include cheating, plagiarism, fabrication, and collusion. If a student has violated the Academic Integrity Regulations, a report should be filed even when the faculty member plans to address the violation directly with the student. 

Report a violation of Academic Integrity Regulations. Once a report is filed, it will be reviewed by Vickie Ross in Academic Affairs who will forward the report to the college/school Dean for appropriate action according to university regulations. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Vickie Ross at 978.542.2472.
