Housed within the Dean of Students Office, the multidisciplinary team meets weekly and is comprised of Quinnipiac staff from departments including but not limited to Student Conduct, Health and Wellness, Public Safety and Residential Life. CARE Team members are trained in both behavioral intervention and threat assessment.
If a member of the university community observes a student exhibiting concerning behavior, we request that they make a CARE referral, which can be submitted to the team 24/7. Signs of concern can span across behavioral, health and wellness, and situational categories, including:
- Disruptive and/or destructive behaviors
- Excessive stress, anxiety or depressive symptons
- Inappropriate/concerning written or verbal communication (including course assignments and social media posts)
- Issues at home/family concerns
The CARE Team has developed the following guide to help you recognize, respond to, refer or consult and report concerns:

Once a referral is received, the CARE Team will determine an intervention plan or support strategies for addressing the concern if needed. All referrals are important and taken seriously. By partnering with members of the Quinnipiac community, the CARE Team works to promote the wellbeing of our students.
