The Early Alert report is for the use of faculty, staff, students, friends and parents of CTX students to report any concerning or red flag comments, behaviors or incidents that would affect the CTX community. Although Early Alerts can be reported anonymously, it is helpful to those who will follow up on the report if there is someone that can be contacted for additional questions.
If this is an emergency or there is an immediate need for intervention/assistance call 911 or CTX Police at 512-313-3311. CTX Police will contact necessary support staff if it is after business hours.
Examples of behaviors or actions that may be reported:
- Classroom disruption
- Violations of residence hall rules or university policy
