Collaboration with the Student Success and Engagement Team (SSET)

The CARE Team works collaboratively with the Student Success and Engagement Team (SSET) whose focus is situated primarily with academic success, skills, and supports. The CARE Team and SSET collaborate with one another as needed. Faculty, staff, and students who engage CARE and SSET do not need to determine which form to use; these teams share one form and determine internally how to direct reports.
