What do I do if a student’s behavior is concerning/odd?

  • Submit a CARE Report to alert our campus CARE team. See link below.
  • The report will be assigned to the most appropriate team member for follow up. 
  • We will keep the report anonymous, but students are often more open to this referral if you let them know that someone will be reaching out to them.
  • Students will be offered an assessment and support services, but they have the right to decline.

Who can submit a CARE Report for Case Management? 

  • Any faculty, staff, student, parent, family or community member who has a concern about a student and wants to connect them to additional support.
