The CARE Team

What is the CARE Team?

CARE Team (Communicate, Assess, Refer, Educate)

When an undergraduate student is involved in a crisis situation, the Pioneers CARE administrator assigns the case to a member of the CARE team (a group of Student Life professionals). The CARE team steps in to connect students with relevant campus resources and outside agencies. Most times, we may need to communicate with the reporting party to help accurately assess the needs of the student. The CARE Team will also outreach to the student to understand his/her situation and develop a plan of action leading towards his/her success.

When a graduate student is involved in a crisis situation or needs support the Pioneers CARE administrator in the Office of Graduate Studies steps in to connect with the student, determine the best resources on campus to help find solutions and develop a plan of action leading towards his/her success.

NOTE: While we may develop strong, supportive relationships with students, the CARE Team does not provide individual student therapy.
