The CARE Team is comprised of representatives from academic and student affairs who meet regularly to discuss and develop interventions for individual students of concern. 

The Care Team approach seeks to instill self-advocacy and connect students to the proper office(s) that will provide the best resource(s) for their unique concerns. Reports to Care Team are reviewed by the Dean of Students (DOS). An initial assessment will be conducted on every report, in many cases, the outcome of this initial assessment is simply to offer support and resources to the student of concern.

In some cases, a more in-depth analysis by the Care Team may occur to determine the next steps of follow-up and provide resource referral. The DOS reviews data to identify particular issues or concerns (e.g. academic trends, behavioral or violent misconduct) that may be addressed through education and prevention initiatives.
