CARE Team Reporting

What is the CARE Team?

CARE stands for Consultation, Assessment, Resource, and Education.

The SVC CARE Team works directly with students to find solutions to academic, social, and personal issues that may impact a student’s potential for success. Congruently, SVC seeks to foster a climate of safety that requires the involvement of all college community members. Faculty, staff, students, and other community members are encouraged to report observed behavior that warrants concerns for the safety and well-being of the community, or the safety of an individual.

What is the CARE Process?

The CARE process exists to support students as they face a variety of barriers to their success and well-being. By collaborating with the reporter and through partnerships. This could include connecting students to the appropriate department, institutional process, identifying college and/or community resources for assistance.
