What types of concerns can be reported?
Any concern about a students welfare may be reported. This includes: medical issues, mental health issues, academic issues, physical safety concerns and others.
Can I make an anonymous CARE Report?
CARE Reports are confidential, but not anonymous. Reporters must provide their contact information in case a follow-up is needed to gather more information. However, the reporter's identity will not be disclosed to the Student of Concern. A limited number of Student Life and Enrollment staff will have access to the CARE Report.
What happens after I file a CARE Report?
All CARE Reports are reviewed daily by Student Life and Enrollment. If it is determined that further action is needed, the student will be contacted and interviewed in person if necessary to assure safety. Depending on the severity of the concern, students may be required to undergo a mental health screen or fulfill other requirements.
