More help for students in trouble

March 25, 2009

KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University continues to build on its ability to identify and assist students who exhibit persistent troubling behavior.

Nancy McFadden, a veteran medical social worker, recently joined the staff in the office of the associate dean of students as a case manager. In October 2008, WMU announced a new, confidential online service for faculty, staff and students to report their concerns about a student whose behavior is troubling and persists despite efforts to intervene. McFadden is among the trained staff evaluating and responding to concerns submitted using the new online form.

The form can be found at www.studentworld.wmich.edu/health.html in the upper right portion of the page. A valid Bronco NetID and password are needed to access the form.

McFadden previously served for eight years in the WMU School of Social Work as director of admissions and student services. Prior to coming to the University, she was a medical social worker at the Kalamazoo Center for Medical Studies, Visiting Nurse Association, and Hospice; and was a clinical case manager for Van Buren County Community Mental Health.
