The Mount Ida CARE Team
The mission of the Mount Ida College CARE Team is to evaluate and address student behavior that raises concerns for the health and well-being of a student. CARE will coordinate the resources of the College to intervene and provide necessary supports. CARE will address student behaviors that are disruptive and may include health and well-being and/or safety concerns.
The CARE Team is made up of staff from Student Affairs, Academic Affairs, and Campus Police. All CARE Team members come with a variety of experience and training from their specific field.
Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs
Coordinator of Advising and Retention Services
Dean of Student Success
Dean of Campus Living
Assistant Director of Counseling Services
The CARE Team evaluates and addresses student behavior that raises a concern for the health and wellbeing of the student and/or community.
Once a concern is shared, the CARE Team will review the information and if needed, coordinate resources, and provide necessary supports.
Why was the group formed?
- Recognition of need for collaborative approach
- How to refer behaviors of concern for review and follow-up
- Streamline response to referrals
- Formalize threat assessment component of CARE
- Create and build a caring community
Examples of when to submit a referral:
If you are unsure about a conversation you were a part of, a behavior you witnessed, something you heard a friend or student say then you should submit a referral and allow the CARE Team to review it.
You may witness one behavior and the CARE Team may be aware of 2 or 3 other behaviors that have been witnessed. Each piece is helpful in identifying the best way(s) to support a student.
How to submit a referral:
If you are a student and concerned about a friend or classmate, you can submit a referral via email@example.com or by speaking with a member of the CARE Team.
What to expect when you submit a referral:
When you submit a referral the CARE Team will review the referral, gather information, apply a rubric to determine risk rating, and then coordinate resources and provide the appropriate supports.
Don’t forget – observations are important!
You may see one piece of a puzzle – CARE may have knowledge of many pieces and the information you share may be helpful in providing the proper support to a student.
