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 Team examines available information about the student and situation, including strategies already implemented to handle the concern, when developing other possible interventions.
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 situation.
Broadly, the Care Team
The Care Team wants faculty, staff, fellow students, and family members to share concerns about student concerns or behavior that they feel is detrimental to the student or the community.
However, it is important that we - as an institution that values diversity - understand that behaviors that may be unique or eccentric are not always detrimental, dangerous or threatening.
To express concern about a student, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact our office at (434) 395-2492.
