CARE Team Process
Refer a student of concern to the CARE Team
Please email the CARE Team your concerns and include, at a minimum, the student’s name, reasons for your concern, whether you have attempted to approach the student yourself, and the outcome of that interaction, if any. All referrals will be kept anonymous unless otherwise indicated by the referrer.
*Please do not include any information that would violate FERPA or HIPAA Guidelines*
Review of referrals by CARE Team
Concerns are reviewed during normal MSUCOM business hours, generally 8:00am until 5:00pm, Monday through Friday. If you are concerned about an immediate safety risk to self or others, please call 911.
Response of CARE Team to reported concerns
Depending on the circumstances, a CARE Team member may respond by directly reaching out to the referred student or otherwise assist in connecting the student with appropriate resources across campus. The CARE Team will continue to monitor the situation and follow-up with the student as needed to promote student success.
*Depending on the circumstances of the concern, the MSUCOM CARE Team may refer the concern on to the MSU Behavioral Threat Assessment Team (BTAT), Office of Institutional Equity (OIE) and/or the MSU Police Department to comply with university policies and procedures*
