What is Care and Concern?
Care and Concern is a centralised university system which students and staff can use to refer, report and get support for non-academic concerns - issues relating to the conduct (or potential misconduct), health, wellbeing, risk of harm, or safety of a student, which can affect a student’s academic engagement. These guidelines are derived from a similarly titled procedure in place at Middlesex University London.
The purpose of the Care and Concern Procedure is to provide all Middlesex University Dubai campus staff and students with simple and clear guidance on what to do should they be concerned about a student.
Care and Concern is a procedure which manages an holistic response to three policies: Safeguarding; Fitness to Study and Student Conduct and Discipline Rules.
The procedure does not manage concerns relating to academic engagement e.g. attendance, achievement, falling grades or academic misconduct. Concerns relating to these should be referred to existing policies and procedures.
