The CARE Team
NEW: Coronavirus CARE
If you are (or you know) a student with any kind of personal or academic need arising from the Coronavirus outbreak, please request CARE Team assistance by completing the Coronavirus CARE form. (More information about the outbreak can be found here.)
Purpose and Function
The Campus Assessment, Response, and Evaluation (CARE) Team serves the campus community by assessing and addressing a wide variety of personal and academic issues that can sometimes become barriers to students’ success. Such barriers include
- Financial distress
- Stress and Anxiety
- Self-harming and suicidal ideation
Faculty, staff, and students may request help from the CARE Team on behalf of any student for whom concern is felt. (Students may also request help for themselves.) To make a request, simply complete the CARE Team form. Please be assured that all requests are confidential and will only be shared on a “need to know” basis.
The CARE Team will assess each request, contact the student of concern, and discuss with them one or more appropriate forms of support so as to ensure academic success.
In Cases of Emotional Distress
If you have a student in your classroom who is in emotional distress and needs immediate assistance, please contact Ann Genson in Counseling Services at x5561. In the event that the incident occurs after hours or Ann is not on campus, she can be reached at all hours on her cell phone: 231-750-7524.
For Students at Imminent Risk of Harm
If you or someone you know is in danger or at imminent risk of harming themselves or others, please immediately call 911. After doing so, and if you are able, we would appreciate your completing the CARE Team form in case there are follow-up steps that the CARE Team can take.
We appreciate all that you do to help ensure a safe and effective learning environment for everyone.
