Concerned about a Student’s Behavior?

The Campus Assessment, Response and Evaluation for Students (CARES) Team is a new campus resource for early intervention of at-risk students who pose a concern, potential threat or actual threat to self or others.

Students exhibiting behaviors that are of concern in relation to their personal, physical and emotional well-being should be referred to the CARES Team along with students who are intimidating, disruptive, aggressive, or violent.

The CARES Team will review all information available on the student’s behavior and background to determine an action plan and monitor the student on a case-by-case basis. To make a referral or view guidelines and recommendations for faculty and staff, visit the CARES website.
