What happens after I make the referral? What happens to the student in the “Care” process?
The student you refer will be given the support and assistance they need by College and community resources.
How do I know if it is a CARE issue or if it is more appropriately handled by other campus resources?
If you see physical, emotional, or academic signs that can threaten the safety or the wellbeing of the college community, the behavior is considered a referral.
