All About Making a KUBIT Referral
To make a referral, complete the Online Incident Form:
Report Concerning Behavior
You will be asked for basic information about the student (to the best of your knowledge) and a description of the incident or behaviors that prompted the referral. We also request your contact information in case the team has follow-up questions, but we do not disclose your identity or information to the person being referred. KUBIT staff encourage you to make a necessary referral and we sincerely appreciate your assistance.
If you have any questions or concerns about the KUBIT referral process, please contact the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs at (908) 737-7080.
What Happens After I Make a Referral?
The primary purpose of KUBIT is to offer strategies for mitigating emergent or crisis situations involving students. After you make a referral, the KUBIT team will reach out to the student. The student will be given the support and assistance he or she needs by University and community resources. Depending on the actions of the student, and following a review of the information presented, additional University or community-based referrals may be required.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
There are often questions and confusion about the limitations and allowances of FERPA in conjunction with the reporting of concerning student behavior. FERPA pertains to the privacy of educational records, but it does not prohibit the reporting of observable behavior.
If you are concerned about any personal interaction or any other observation you’ve made pertaining to student behavior, you are encouraged to report and/or consult with appropriate faculty or staff, especially as it relates to the educational mission of the University.
