About the CARE Team

What Happens When You Contact the CARE Team

The CARE Team will assess the referral and make a determination about a course of action to proceed in helping the individual and the campus community. If there is a mental health concern, specialized members of the team will provide follow-up and resources to the individual. If a crime is alleged, the police will investigate and, when appropriate, the student may be prosecuted. Similarly, if a violation of the Student Code of Conduct is alleged, the student may be subject to disciplinary action. If it is assessed that the individual's presence on campus or participation in University activities may threaten campus health or safety, or significantly disrupt University activities or functions, immediate steps will be taken to protect the campus community.
