The Office of Student Affairs has hired Gina Loschiavo as the coordinator for Early Alert and special projects. The Early Alert program, co-chaired by Matt Baasten, associate provost and dean of the Graduate School, and Matthew Rygg, associate vice president of student development, is a referral program for faculty, staff, and parents who are concerned about the physical, emotional, academic, or personal health of a University student.
Loschiavo’s role includes direct outreach to students of concern and coordination with the Early Alert team to assess situations, offer support, and provide referrals to the breadth of resources on campus. She will offer training for faculty and staff about the Early Alert program on Wednesday, September 7, at 12:05 p.m., in the Teske Dining Room, with lunch provided. The training will cover how the Early Alert program supports students and how faculty and staff play a crucial role in identifying students of concern.
Gina will continue to offer trainings throughout the fall semester and is available for individual and departmental presentations.
