How does the CARE Team help students:

  • Manage crisis situations by engaging emergency professionals.
how it functions:
  • Receive reports and information regarding students of concern.

    1. Determine the level of action required (urgent or non-urgent).
    2. Assign the case to a Dean of Students’ administrator or CARE Team case manager.
  • Identify and assess multiple dimensions of well-being to determine appropriate referral and/or action by a CARE Team member.
  • Monitor, reach out, or connect the student to resources.
  • Review steps are taken to complete the cycle of referral.
