About CARE Team

The mission of the Care Team is to serve as consultants to various campus constituents who may have concerns about students on the campus of Baylor University based upon their interactions with these individuals. The group will meet every other week and more often if needed to help fulfill the following goals:

  1. Educate and train campus community members about the role and purpose of the work group so that faculty, staff, and students know how and when to bring an issue to the group's attention
  2. Determine the most appropriate systems, both inside and outside the institution, for assessing students of concern
  3. Work together to determine how best to intervene with students when necessary
  4. Facilitate efforts to gather information regarding students who come to the attention of the team and help ensure that necessary action is taken as needed at the time
  5. Engage in a collaborative process to review the most appropriate policies and procedures governing the group's operation.1
