The Consultation, Assistance, Referral, and Education Team (CARE Team) assesses referrals from the campus community, facilitates communication, and initiates appropriate responses to specific behavioral concerns or short-term circumstances that may involve threats to the safety and security of the University community.
Note: This committee was formerly referred to as the "Students of Concern Committee", or "SOCC".
Anyone can refer a student to the CARE Team, including faculty, staff, students, parents/families, and others who observe concerns or think that a student might benefit from additional resources and support. Information submitted to the CARE Team will be treated confidentially.
Some Concerns Commonly Referred to the CARE Team Include:
These examples are not all inclusive. There is no such thing as over-referring, so please feel free to submit a referral if you are unsure about whether the issue should be sent to the CARE Team. We are here to help.

Submit an online referral for non-urgent concerns by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include the student's name and as much information as possible to your referral email.
Send a non-urgent referral via email to the Dean of Students. Your referral will be shared with the CARE Team as necessary.
