Student Care & Support

The Office of Student Care & Support provides support to students who are experiencing difficulties that may prevent full engagement in the collegiate experience or hinder a student’s success.

We know that students face challenges both in or out of the classroom, especially during this busy time in their lives. Student Care and Support provides triage, support, coaching, and education for students, faculty, staff, and parents so the entire Belmont community can actively support our students as they navigate this exciting (yet sometimes challenging) role of being a college student.

We work with students to offer holistic care including:

  • Academic Concerns
  • Emotional well-being
  • Mental health
  • Grief
  • Physical Health
  • COVID-19
  • Financial Insecurity
  • Housing or Food Insecurity
  • Pregnancy Support
  • Relational Stress
  • Sexual Misconduct
  • Eating Disorders
  • Body Image or Nutrition
  • Violence or Harassment

It is the responsibility of faculty, staff, and students to immediately report any situation that could possibly result in harm to anyone at the University. The Student Concern System is not 911 and should only be utilized for non-life-threatening concerns. Please contact Campus Security for all immediate safety concerns at 615-460-6911. Student Concern System notifications are informational only, and actions taken by University staff to concerns submitted may be confidential and/or private.
