CARE Team Description

West Chester University’s CARE Team collaborates with specialized members to promote the safety and well-being of our campus community. The purpose of CARE is to identify an alarming behavior, and provide support to someone who may have academic and/or personal challenges which may have an impact on a successful college experience. This may include behavior regarding a peer or conversations between groups or individuals that may potentially be unhealthy. CARE requests your input so we may be proactive in fostering safety, healthy well-being, and academic achievement for our community. Meet the CARE team
