Student Outreach & Support

Pioneers CARE

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.
