The purpose of the CARE Team is to provide a multidisciplinary centralized structure for the campus community for early intervention of at-risk individuals through collaboration and effective communication with campus departments, students, faculty and staff. Individuals exhibiting behaviors that are of concern in relation to their personal, physical and emotional well-being should be referred to the CARE Team along with individuals who are intimidating, disruptive, aggressive, or violent. The CARE Team will review all information available on the individual's behavior and background to determine an appropriate action-plan and monitor the individual on a case-by-case basis.
