Campus Assessment Response and Evaluation (CARE) Team

Mission Statement

The California State University, Chico Campus Assessment Response and Evaluation (CARE) Team is a multi-disciplinary group of campus professionals that work in a proactive and collaborative approach to respond to campus community concerns. The CARE Team works to intervene early and develop appropriate courses of action for referred students. The Team strives to promote individual student wellbeing and success while prioritizing community safety. 

Role on Campus

The purpose of the CARE Team is to function as an interdisciplinary at-risk behavioral assessment and support system, focused on early intervention, as well as threat assessment. The team tracks data and examines patterns, trends, and disturbances in individual or group behavior. The team receives reports of disruptive, problematic, or concerning behavior or misconduct (from colleagues, community members, friends, etc.), investigates, performs a threat assessment, and determines the best mechanisms for support, intervention, warning, or notification, and response. The team then deploys its resources and community 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.
