Pioneers CARE (Communicate, Assess, Refer, Educate) outreach program helps find solutions for students experiencing academic, social and crisis situations including mental health concerns. Members of the University community can submit a Pioneers CARE report for a student who might benefit from services. We review these reports to understand each student issue and the on- and off-campus resources that may guide them to success.
When working with students, try identifying signs or stressors. These signs may include but are not limited to:
- Academic difficulty
- Difficulties with family/home environment
- Difficulties with adjusting to the college experience
- Excessive or unexplained absences
- Financial concerns
- Mental health issues
- Physical health issues
- Relationship issues
- Self-harm concerns
- Unable to locate a student
- Witness to an incident
If you know of a student who is experiencing any of the above signs or stressors, we encourage you to submit a Pioneers CARE report through the online reporting system:
A note about confidentiality:
As a part of this process, we work very hard to maintain confidentiality for students so they trust the work we’re doing. As a result, if you submit a report, we don’t generally report back or communicate with you about the details of how we’ll be working with individual students.
A Pioneers CARE report is not for emergencies. If there is an immediate threat to a student (either through self-harm or interpersonal violence) or the community, please call Campus Safety at 303-871-3000, or if dialing from a campus phone, 1-3000.
If you have a concern about our reporting process, please contact the Pioneers CARE administrator.
