The Campus Assessment, Response and Evaluation (CARE) Team serves the Wake Forest University community by evaluating and responding to disruptive, troubling, or threatening behaviors brought to the attention of the Team. As a part of this work the Team also seeks to help identify members of the Wake Forest community who are in need of support, guidance, or other intervention and to refer them to appropriate campus and community resources. The CARE Team is empowered by the University President to make decisions and take appropriate action in fulfillment of its mission. The Vice President for Campus Life provides administrative oversight for the Team. The CARE Team is composed of representatives from throughout the University who have specific expertise and professional training in the assessment of, and intervention with, individuals who may present a threat to themselves and/or the University community. The CARE Team serves to follow up with persons who display behaviors of concern and connect them with supportive resources as warranted. The CARE Team also educates the campus community about how to identify and promptly report concerning behaviors.
The CARE Team is not tasked with responding to emergencies. If this is an emergency and you are in need of immediate assistance or consultation, contact WFU Police at 336.758.5911 or 911 from a campus phone.
