Who is a "student of concern"?


CARE Team referrals encompass a broad range of student concerns, many of which are often independent of any behavioral concern about a student and/or indicate a lower-level concern that does not typically warrant an urgent intervention. Examples of non-behavioral referrals include

  • the loss of a loved one
  • unusual financial difficulties
  • food or housing insecurity
  • feeling overwhelmed with the transition to college life
  • relationship and family concerns
  • short- or long-term illness or injury
  • challenges getting involved and connected

Other CARE Team referrals involve specific behavioral concerns, such as:

  • thoughts of suicide
  • severe emotional distress
  • disruptive behavior
  • drastic changes in mood, appearance, or behavior
  • threats to the safety of the student or the campus community 

If you have information that indicates an immediate safety risk, please call the Department of Public Safety at 206-296-5911.
