The Care Team intervenes to provide support for students who raise concern about their potential for harm to themselves or others. The Care Team will assess the potential risk to personal and campus safety that might result from the actions of individual students, will connect students in need with appropriate resources and will monitor compliance with required support plans.
The team is charged with taking steps:
(1.) to collect information about students who demonstrate, through current or past behavior, conduct or expression that they may pose a safety risk to either themselves or the campus community
(2.) to connect information that is collected into an assessment of risk that may exist
(3.) to prevent possible harm by recommending appropriate action to either assist an individual in fulfilling their obligations as a student or to remove an individual student from the campus community. The committee is led by Kristen Helling, Associate Director of Student Care & Support, and its proceedings are confidential.
