What is the SCC CARE Team

The Southeast Community College (SCC) Campus Assessment, Response, Evaluation (CARE) Team mission is to provide a safe environment for the college community through coordinated analysis and risk assessment of student well-being, collaboration across the campus, information collection, intervention and case management.

The CARE Team is a cross-functional assessment group that responds to students in need or in apparent/potential distress. The CARE Team will provide a means to report and/or to identify and monitor student wellness concerns or behaviors that may be troubling and to engage students sooner, rather than later. Early engagement assures these students can receive needed referrals or other appropriate assistance and treatment. The CARE team functions to:

  • Collect information from students, faculty, staff, and the College community about students who demonstrate a potential need through current or past behavior, conduct or expression.
  • Evaluate collected information against a standard of care response and rubric.
  • Prevent possible harm by providing support and initiating appropriate intervention/referral based on evaluation.

The core CARE team consists of membership from the following College divisions/services:
