Campus Assessment, Response and Evaluation (CARE) Team
The CARE Team is a group of UMSL staff who share their knowledge and expertise in an effort to address situations of concern. Though university students are the main focus of the CARE Team, concerning incidents involving visitors and guests are also discussed and acted upon as needed.
Meetings are held every two weeks throughout the academic year to ensure adequate and open communication between CARE Team members. Following these meetings, the case managers identify and implement action plans as appropriate.
The information shared within this group is confidential and is used solely for the purpose of determining an appropriate university response.
