Behavioral Concerns

On a college campus, behaviors of concern have often gone unreported. When a tragedy occurs, people come forward with small bits of information that, in retrospect, point to a specific problem. These bits of information when viewed together may be helpful in preventing tragic events and initiating assistance to individuals of concern. As such, the University of Missouri - Saint Louis has established both the CARE Team and the UMSL Intervention Team. The CARE Team is charged with communicating important information with key members of the campus community (e.g., incident reports, police reports, observations, etc.), while the UMSL Intervention Team is charged with developing action plans and intervention strategies as needed. Cases often start as discussion items within the CARE Team and then advance to the UMSL Intervention Team for final adjudication.

Even if you think an individual is joking, please let us know. By reporting this behavior, you become an important link in securing a safe and healthy campus environment.
