The CARE (Campus Assessment Response and Education) Team is a cross-functional team that assesses, refers and/or responds to students identified as demonstrating emotional distress in a coordinated and comprehensive manner with dignity and respect, to help them succeed and to ensure the safety of the university community as a whole.

What Does The CARE Team Do?

The CARE Team’s primary purpose is to make sure students are emotionally well enough to function academically and are safe to be on campus. This is accomplished by helping students connect with professional care providers in order to resolve behavioral and emotional difficulties. Toward that end, the CARE Team refers to action guidelines. The particular action taken in an individual situation depends upon the circumstances of that student’s condition and the severity of the situation.

When To Make A Referral
