Without the Student’s Knowledge
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. For more information about the CARE Team and/or to make a report, please click here.
