||The Anderson University Campus Assessment, Response, and Evaluation (CARE) Team cares about the academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical success of all students. Our mission is to promote the health and safety of all students and the campus community. The purpose of the C.A.R.E. Team is to be proactive in identifying and assisting students who are distressed and/or exhibiting disruptive or dangerous behaviors. Our goal is to come alongside students in need of support, guidance, or other intervention and connect them with the resources they need to be successful and hopefully reduce their risk for crisis.
The team is comprised of faculty and staff from across the university and meets on a weekly basis.
