  • It sends reminders when you need shots.
  • It gives you a copy of the shot record from the doctor.
  • It can show proof about shots needed to start school or a new job.

If you DO want your records in the registry, do nothing. You're all done.

If you DO NOT want your doctor's office to share your immunization information in the registry: Please request the "Decline or Start Sharing/Information Request Form" from the Student Health Center.

Who can Make a referral to the CARE Team?

Anyone who feels behavior is concerning can make a referral. There is an online form that is open to anyone who wishes to report a concern. This includes students, parents, faculty, staff and community members. The CARE Team may need to ask additional questions to understand the issues involved and therefore request that you provide identifying information and contact information for the person making the referral. This reporting information is kept private but cannot be considered completely confidential. However, if you wish to remain anonymous you can do that while using the online form as well by omitting your personal information.

How do I know when to contact the CARE Team?

If you have concerns and are wondering, "Whom should I tell about this?" the CARE Team is available to consult and help plan interventions when necessary. We have members from HR, Student Counseling, Public Safety, Risk Management, and Student Affairs among others to help analyze and direct resources as necessary. However, if you feel there is a chance for imminent harm, contact the University Police Department 9-1-1.

In on-campus emergency situations, call University Police at (909) 537-5999. Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) has an after hours phone crisis counselor at (909) 537-7777.

How do I know if a concerning behavior is a CARE Team issue, or is more appropriately handled by other campus resources?

You do not have to make that determination on your own. The CARE Team is a multidisciplinary team from members across campus. The most important step is that you report the concerning behavior. If another campus resource is more appropriate, the CARE Team will refer the individual and handle the transfer of information.

Will I violate student's privacy rights if I contact the CARE Team?

No, the CARE Team members are all experts in their field and university employees who may share information from student records with other campus employees if there is a "legitimate educational interest." Additionally members of the community can share personal observations about students, faculty, and staff without violating any federal guidelines about university confidentiality. If safety is at stake, the campus can also disclose information as needed to prevent harm.

Can the CARE Team provide training for my group?

Yes. Contact the CARE Team at to arrange training tailored to your situation and needs, including how to respond to disruptive, intimidating, or threatening behavior.

I made a referral, but I don't know what happen after that, why am I not notified?

After reporting some disruptive behavior or referring a student to the CARE Team, often people wonder what happened to the concern. They might still see the student on campus… or might not. While we understand this level of concern it is also important for the CARE Team to maintain the confidentiality of a student especially with regards to psychological and medical interventions that might have occurred. Also, some behavior while disruptive might not meet the criteria for removal from campus or classes. If you are wondering about follow-up on a referral you made, please do not hesitate to contact the CARE Team at

What happens to the person I've referred in the CARE Team process?

The CARE Team provides community members with respectful and proactive support while offering resources that balance the rights of the individual with the overall mission of CSUSB. Depending on the reported behavior interventions can range from individual contact and providing resources for the person of concern to police involvement if a crime has been committed.
