The Community, Assessment, Response and Evaluation (CARE) Team is committed to the safety and well-being of our community through proactive, coordinated and deliberate approaches by identifying, assessing, managing and reducing any student interpersonal or behavioral concerns. The CARE Team is a partnership of various university offices that is supported by the Office of the Dean of Students.

Team members include all Residential Life Professional Staff, and select staff from Counseling, Student Health Services, Graduate Student Affairs, Fraternity and Sorority Life, Veteran and Military Affairs, Title IX, Office of Inclusive Excellence, and Student Affairs.

CARE referrals are submitted by faculty, staff, students and community members. Referrals range from topics including: helping a student during difficult times such as the passing of a loved one; when a student needs support for their physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, financial health; and/or when experiencing social challenges with roommates, friends and/or peers. If you are concerned about a peer, student or yourself, please submit a referral using the form provided below.

If a member of the university community observes a student exhibiting concerning behavior, we request that they make a CARE referral. The CARE referral form is not to be used for emergency situations. In an emergency situation, immediately call 911 or Public Safety at 203-582-6200.
