The CARE Team is not tasked with responding to emergencies. If this is an emergency and you are in need of immediate assistance contact CSUSB Police (909) 537-5165 or 911.
Role On Campus
The CARE (Campus Assessment, Response and Education) Team is a multidisciplinary group of professional staff members that come together to provide support and resources to students. The CARE Team receives, assesses, responds to, and monitors behavior on campus that may be disruptive, concerning, or threatening.
The purpose of the CARE Team is to provide a centralized structure for the campus community to report concerns. We meet our goal of early intervention for at-risk individuals through collaboration and effective communication with campus departments, students, faculty, and staff.
The CARE Team should be contacted about individuals who may be exhibiting behaviors of concern in relation to their personal, physical or emotional wellbeing, or who are behaving in a manner that is intimidating, disruptive, aggressive or violent. Once a referral is made, the CARE Team will review all available information and make a determination regarding appropriate outcomes, and will follow up with the reporting and responding parties. The CARE team is also able to provide referrals for other resources and support.
The CARE Team should not be contacted as a first-response to emergencies. If there is an immediate threat or concern for someone’s health or safety, please call University Police at (909) 537-5165, or dial 911.
