Campus Assessment Response and Evaluation (CARE) Team

Mission Statement

The California State University Chico Campus Assessment Response and Evaluation (CARE) Team is dedicated to promoting the safety and wellness of the campus community by addressing situations where students are displaying behaviors that are disruptive, threatening, or concerning which may potentially impact their ability to be successful and safe.

Role on Campus

The purpose of the CARE Team is to function as an at-risk behavioral assessment and support team, focused on early intervention, as well as threat assessment.

The team tracks red flags over time, detecting patterns, trends, and disturbances in individual or group behavior. The team receives reports of disruptive, problematic or concerning behavior or misconduct (from co-workers, community members, friends, colleagues, etc), performs a risk or threat assessment, and determines the best mechanisms for support, intervention, warning/notification, and response. The team then deploys resources and coordinates follow-up.

The CARE Team is not tasked with responding to emergencies. If this is an emergency and you are in need of immediate assistance, contact University Police at 530-898-5555.
