Without the Student’s Knowledge - Making a CARE Team Report
Faculty and staff are encouraged to report any incident or behavior that may require an intervention or is of concern. If you are concerned about a student's behavior, please fill out a CARE Team Report Form online. The form will go to a representative of the Crisis Assessment and Risk Evaluation (CARE) Team. The CARE Team uses these reports to assist the student, while also considering the behavior’s impact on the greater campus community. The Counseling Center staff will reach out to the student if it is for a personal matter. 

Note: If this is an emergency, a CARE Team Report should be completed AFTER the emergency is reported. For more information about the CARE Team and/or to make a report, please click here.

With the Student’s Knowledge
During business hours (Monday - Friday, 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM), you may do the following:
  • Contact the Counseling Center at (412) 397-5900 and explain that you have a student who would like to meet with a counselor.
  • Encourage the student to contact us at (412) 397-5900 or counseling@rmu.edu. 
  • Encourage the student to walk in to schedule an initial appointment at the Counseling Center, located on the lower level of Patrick Henry Center (former Career Center).
  • Escort the student to the Counseling Center to schedule an initial appointment.
The Counseling Center Staff will walk you and/or the student through the intake process. 

After referring the student, you are encouraged to also complete a CARE Team report here.
