Care Team

The Care Team serves as a centralized coordinated body for discussion and action (through intervention practices) regarding students exhibiting behaviors that indicate distress, cause a disturbance in the community, and/or present a danger to oneself or others. Committed to proactive, early intervention, the Care Team supports students directly and through consultation with campus partners. When necessary, the Care Team also assesses risk of harm to the University community and coordinates appropriate action to protect the safety of individual students and the University community or property. Additionally, the Care Team has primary responsibility for soliciting/receiving information from members of the community about potentially at-risk students/situations.

The Care Team is a multi-disciplinary team that brings together representatives from major areas of the University including Student Life, Enrollment Management and Student Success, and Law Enforcement. The Dean of Students or designee serves as the leader of the Care Team.
