Crisis Assessment Risk Evaluation (C.A.R.E.) Behavioral Intervention Team

Dear Campus Community,

As part of our culture of care and support, the University of Denver is committed to providing care and access to resources to create a safe and secure environment for our campus community to maintain our safety, health, and well-being. The C.A.R.E. team is comprised of staff and administrators across campus who are dedicated to crisis support and behavioral intervention in the best interest of the individual student and the campus community. The C.A.R.E. team takes a proactive, objective, supportive, and collaborative approach to the prevention, identification, assessment, intervention, management of, and coordinated response to situations and behaviors that may be disruptive or pose a risk of harm.  As we care for both the individual student and the campus community, the following policies outline the ways in which the C.A.R.E. team intervene, identify behavioral expectations and other support strategies to help the student remain in good standing with the University. While the C.A.R.E. team leads this effort of behavioral intervention, every member of the community has a shared responsibility and shared ownership in the culture of care and support. 

In gratitude of our partnership,

The C.A.R.E. team
