The CARE Team system empowers Wake Forest University community members or other individuals to express concern regarding a fellow Deac, incident, or behaviors by submitting a CARE referral online.

  • You can submit a referral for any Wake Forest student, faculty, or staff member, including yourself, to receive caring outreach and get connected with support.
  • A referral initiates a review by members of the CARE Team, who seeks to provide support, guidance, or other intervention to students, faculty, and staff in need and connect them with appropriate campus and community resources. 

Should you need assistance, or have concerns for a friend or colleague in the Wake Forest University community, please reach out to us.
