Assisting Students in Crisis

The Student Affairs Care Team was formed to provide a coordinated response to situations or concerns affecting students, the campus, or the surrounding community.  Any member of the campus community, including students, faculty or staff may contact the Care Team to request assistance and to discuss any concerns regarding a student or student's behavior, academic progress, safety or well being. The Cal Poly Care Team is chaired by the Dean of Students and has representatives from University Housing, Health and Counseling Services, University Police Department, the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities, Student Ombuds Services, Academic Advising, and Disability Resource Center.

The Care Team meets regularly to discuss student-related concerns, to identify campus resources, to coordinate a campus response, and to serve as a consultive team of student affairs professionals designed to assist faculty and staff in responing to student behavior and related situations. 

As faculty, you are encouraged to contact the chair of the Care Team when you become aware of a student in crisis and/or would like guidance in responding to a student. You may also schedule a time to meet directly with the Care Team to discuss a student's situation.
