About the CARE Team

The Campus Assessment, Response and Evaluation Team, known as the CARE Team, is a group of staff members from various departments who meet regularly to assist students experiencing difficulty and to help ensure the safety of our campus.

We recognize that college is an exciting time, but it can also be both personally and academically challenging. These challenges are often compounded when students are managing additional issues related to their health, wellbeing or family lives.

UW-Whitewater offers a range of services designed to promote student development and success. Despite the availability of these services, many students who are at risk or in crisis are unaware of the support available to them on campus or may be reluctant to access it.

What Does the CARE Team Do?
CARE Team members meet on a regular basis to do the following:
· Review critical campus incidents
· Develop intervention strategies to assist students in crisis (faculty/staff as needed with HR)
· Develop protocols and proactive ways to address recurring student issues
· Discuss campus trends that may impact student safety, services, programs and general campus life
· Make recommendations to campus staff or faculty as appropriate
 
The group places a high priority on balancing a person’s right to privacy with the university’s duty to respond to people experiencing difficulty or expressing at-risk behavior. The CARE Team’s primary objective is to connect students with the support and resources they need to be healthy and productive members of our campus community. Though the team’s primary focus is assisting students, assistance is provided for faculty and staff members when needed.
