CARE Team (Heath and Wellness Resources)

Guided by university values of a student-oriented environment and a strong sense of community, the CARE (Community, Assessment, Response, and Evaluation) Team employs a caring, preventive, early intervention approach with students who exhibit concerning or disruptive behaviors. The multidisciplinary team meets weekly to review and discuss new referrals, ongoing cases, and the best course of action to support the student of concern. CARE Team members are trained through the National Behavioral Intervention Team Association (NaBITA) in both behavioral intervention and threat assessment. Objective risk rubrics are utilized for consistent and objective assessments of potential risks and emerging threats towards self or others. By partnering with members of the Quinnipiac community, the CARE Team works to promote student wellbeing and success in the context of community safety.
