About the CARE Team

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 at (909) 537-5165 or dial 911.

What Happens When You Contact the CARE Team

The CARE Team will assess the referral and make a determination about a course of action to proceed in helping the individual and the campus community.

  • If there is a mental health concern, specialized members of the team will assess and provide follow up to the student, which can include resources to community or campus partners.
  • If a student basic needs issue is identified the student will be assessed and the appropriate community referrals will be made to assist the student.
  • Reports of concerning behavior that may constitute a crime or violation of the Standards of Student Conduct may result in a separate referral to University Police or the Office of Student Conduct & Ethical Development.
