Faculty, staff, and students can safely and securely submit information on a student experiencing academic challenges or other issues. When a referral is made, the First Year Initiative will reach out to the student to help identify problem areas and to help the student take ownership of their academic success.

To ensure the safety of students, faculty, and staff, The University of Southern Mississippi offers the Eagle Alert emergency notification system.

Eagle Alert allows the university to better inform the campus community of imminent danger and emergency situations.
