The Community Assessment & Risk Evaluation (CARE) Team is a cross-functional committee of faculty, staff and administrators who identify, assess and mitigate risks associated with students exhibiting concerning behavior or thoughts. In order to address the wellbeing and security of the community and the individual, the CARE Team will partner with the community and recommend interventions that help ensure the likelihood of a positive and safe resolution.
The CARE Team works toward early identification and assessment of behavior that may put the well-being of the individual or the greater community at risk. While there is no single set of warning signs that will reliably predict harm or campus violence, the CARE Team conducts a comprehensive assessment to look for behavioral evidence that someone is planning or preparing to act out inappropriately or carry out some type of threat, and if appropriate, will intervene.
