The mission of the College’s Campus Assessment Response and Evaluation (CARE) Team is to serve as a behavioral intervention team in order to provide a proactive and supportive multi-disciplinary team approach to prevention, assessment, intervention, and management of situations that may impact the safety and well-being of individuals or the College community.
Campus Members Responsibilities
It is the responsibility of faculty, staff, and students to immediately report any situation that could possibly result in harm to anyone at the College. These reports may be directed to the CARE Team or the Director of Safety and Security, depending on the nature of the concern.
When there is an active or immediate risk of violence or harm to others you should call 911.
How Do I Submit a Referral on a Person of Concern?
In non-emergency situations, you may fill out an online Concerning Behavior Form, call, or email a member of the CARE Team, or submit an anonymous report.
Behaviors of concern might be observed in a number of settings: in the classroom, at a service location or office, at an on-campus job, or during participation in an extracurricular activity. By reporting behaviors that are concerning, the Behavioral Intervention Team will be able to reach out to students to intervene, provide support, and connect them with resources that can assist them.
The CARE process does not replace faculty classroom management, disciplinary processes, and/or public safety responses to incidents.
The CARE Team Model works within all current college policies and serves as a model to formalize current informal processes at the College.
Anonymous Form - Download and complete this form. Then, email it to a member of the CARE Team as noted below. Please note, you may choose to remain anonymous, but if the CARE Team needs additional details and you do not provide your contact information, we may not be able to conduct a proper and thorough investigation.
Report to CARE behaviors such as:
- Demeanor that represents a significant change in appearance, mood, and/or social functioning
- Behavior that creates a disruptive or hostile campus environment
- Actions that potentially endanger the safety of any member of the GNTC community
- Conduct that impacts a GNTC community member’s physical and/or psychological well-being
- Acts that cause damage to personal or college property
- Behavior that impacts the ability of students to learn, faculty to teach, or the college to conduct routine business
Disruptive behavior and violent threats or acts may be complex, intimidating, and confusing. The concerning behavior that you witness may be one small piece of a larger puzzle that more completely describes the person of concern.
By reporting these and any other behavior or incident that may be impacting an individual’s ability to be successful in the community to CARE, the team may provide appropriate resources.
CARE provides a centralized assessment of all behaviors and your information may be critical to the team’s ability to assess the situation and design appropriate intervention.
