The University of Kentucky has developed an online system called "Student Alert" that allows individuals to make a report when they develop a concern about the welfare of a student. Once a "Student Alert" has been submitted, the SOC Case Manager is automatically notified and along with the SOC Committee can begin to take the appropriate action.
The "Student Alert" system and the SOC Committee are NOT resources to be used for emergencies!
If you are in an emergency situation that requires medical,
psychological or police services, call 911 from a campus phone.
Off-campus and cell phones, 859-257-UKPD (8573).
Do not use the Student Alert system if an immediate response is required.
Once the situation is safe, you should submit a "Student Alert".
The "Student Alert" report system is accessed via the myUK portal* .
* (Currently online access to the "Student Alert" reporting system is limited to certain UK faculty and staff. See below for information on how to report if you don't have access to the form.)
Once logged in to the myUK portal you:
If you do not have access to the Student Alert form via myUK, you may phone the SOC Case Manager directly at 859-257-5134.
The SOC Committee meets weekly during the fall and spring semesters and as needed at other times of the year. The Committee reviews the submitted alerts, discusses and determines appropriate outreach/intervention. Referrals are then made to the appropriate department or agency. The SOC Case Manager provides liaison and follow-up as needed and maintains documentation of alert submissions, outreach, and referrals.
The Student Alert system and SOC process is not meant to replace individual interventions by faculty and staff and The SOC process should only be used if other direct methods have been tried and failed!
What are examples of appropriate times to notify the SOC via the Student Alert system?
