Mission Statement

The Concern, Assessment, Response, and Evaluation (CARE) Team proactively identifies, assesses, and mitigates risks with a multidisciplinary approach that values the wellbeing and safety of our students and campus community. 

Purpose and Action

  • Improve communication across campus (among faculty, classified professionals, and administrators) to gather more accurate and detailed information about community members in distress.
  • Identify trends and concerns related to health, wellness, and safety across the CCSF Campus Community.
  • Implement continuing education and training opportunities for the campus community (e.g., Supporting Students in Distress, Violent Intruder, Review of Policies & Procedures).
  • Establish prevention and intervention strategies to promote health, wellness, and safety.
  • Work collectively to identify community members in distress and coordinate support, resources, and appropriate referrals.
