CARE Alert System

The CARE Alert system helps to support students by getting students referred to resources early on.  The system relies on campus community members or “CARE Connectors" (e.g. academic advisors, coaches, residence life staff) to help connect students who may be facing difficulties, either academically or personally, to resources and support services.


How does the CARE Alert System Work? 

Concern, Refer, CARE Alert, Outreach

  1. CONCERN: A faculty or staff member notices a student who is having difficulties or in distress. 
  2. REFER: They will then identify this concern by submitting a CARE Alert through the online module CARE.
  3. CARE Alerts: After receiving an alert, an intake coordinator will then help to identify an appropriate campus resource to connect with the student, meaning a staff member who acts as a Care Connector.  If the concern is determined to be best handled by the Assessment and Care Team (ACT), the intake coordinator will provide the information to the Coordinator of ACT.
  4. OUTREACH: The CARE Connector will reach out to the student and offer support or referrals to other resources to help support their success.
