CARE Team

IN CASE OF EMERGENCY CALL 911

BBCC cares about its students’ academic, emotional and physical success. The Campus Assessment Response and Evaluation Team, or CARE Team, was created to address and support individuals in distress or whose behaviors raise concerns about their well-being or that of others. The CARE team provides support to students, staff, and faculty by assessing, responding, evaluating, and monitoring reports about individuals who exhibit concerning behavior and connects those individuals with appropriate resources.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who are “individuals of concern”?

An individual of concern is any individual who demonstrates disruptive behavior, personal difficulties, mental and/or emotional instability, or otherwise causes another member of the campus community to feel distressed.

How does it work?

Individuals of concern are reported to the CARE Team, whose goal is to develop a holistic intervention strategy and action plan designed to specifically address their unique needs.

Why submit a report?

The CARE Team can provide additional resources and individualized help to those who are experiencing difficulties. This support is beneficial to both the individual and the campus community. All referral information is confidential.

What happens next?

The following timeline explains the steps that will occur when a case is opened. Typically, a case is closed within a month of it being opened. However, cases are assessed upon submission and may be fast-tracked to action based on type and student need. The process is documented and managed by the CARE team.

A case is opened when a person files a report through Maxient Incident Report or by verbal communications, email communications, etc.
