The offices of Academic Advising & Assistance and the Center for Cura Personalis oversee the REFER Form, which combines the Early Warning System and Student of Concern form into one seamless, comprehensive program. REFER is used to identify students who may be at risk academically and/or for whom you have emotional, social, or behavioral concerns.

Referrals initiate a process to identify and provide support to students who may need it. Our offices make every effort to contact referred students within 1-2 business days and that some action is taken on every form that is received.

Form submissions are not monitored outside of normal business hours, including weekends and University holidays. If you have immediate concerns about the health or safety of a student, or for the Gonzaga community, please call Campus Security & Public Safety at (509) 313-2222, or 911.

For questions about the program, or to refer via phone, please contact our offices using the information here:

The primary focus of the staff in CCP is to support students through social, emotional, physical, and mental challenges, connect them to appropriate campus and community resources, promote growth in self-advocacy, and empower students to build confidence in their ability to navigate toward their own solutions. Case managers work collaboratively across the institution and in the Spokane community to develop support plans that provide a caring and comprehensive student experience, Case managers will meet one-on-one with the students you refer to help identify stressors and make a plan for holistic well-being outside of the classroom to enable success within the classroom.
