FC Cares

students collaborating in circle

We know that sometimes you might not know where to turn to ask for some help and everyone hates a run-around when you have a question. This is why we created FC Cares. If you have a concern about staying at Franklin College or are stumbling around to figure out how to get help, big or small, all you have to do is call the Dean of Student Success, Keri Ellington, at 317.738.8333. You can also email studentsuccess@FranklinCollege.edu if that is more convenient. If Dean Ellington can’t help herself, she’ll do the back work to connect you with those who can. She can act as a resource for students and family members. No concern is too silly or question too trivial. We want to provide the support we can before something snowballs. We have a team of people, called the Student Success Team, at the ready to help in lots of ways.

  • Common reasons to reach out might include:
  • Homesickness
  • Family Emergency
  • Feeling Lost/Questioning
  • Decision to attend FC                    
  • Academic Performance
  • Relationship Issues                          
  • Illness/Medical Concern                        
  • Financial Issues
  • Behavioral Concerns                                  
  • Athletic Concerns
  • General Questions                                  

Why Do we Have FC Cares?

Because at Franklin College, we don’t just support one another; we inspire one another toward higher goals. We also realize that stretching out of comfort zones and pursuing excellence can be challenging and that life can sometimes be hard.

Our ultimate goal is for every single student to graduate from Franklin College and the student success team collaborates with all departments, faculty, staff, students and their families to create a caring culture.

Anyone can make a referral to the team anytime you feel a student is struggling with success and persistence at Franklin College. Students often refer themselves, too. When a student is referred to the Student Success Team, we formulate a plan to guide that student to programs and services that support academic success, social integration, personal well-being, financial resources and other appropriate services as the need determines.
