The Wake Forest University Campus Assessment, Response, and Evaluation (CARE) Team specializes in listening, responding, and connecting. We follow up with referred community members to hear their stories, identify their needs, and connect them with the resources and interventions that best suit their individual circumstances and the community at large. We care about our fellow Demon Deacons, and want to ensure their safety, wellbeing, and success by providing this additional support.
In addition, the CARE Team also educates the campus community about how to identify distressing or concerning behaviors, and how to promptly report those worries. Please see our “Outreach” page if you would like to learn more about our community education opportunities available for student groups, faculty departments, or staff offices.
The CARE Team is comprised of professionals from the following offices:
- Human Resources
- Office of Academic Advising
- Office of the Dean of Students
- Residence Life and Housing
- Student Health Service
- University Counseling Center
- University Legal Department
- University Police
For specific or unique situations, the team will consult with liaisons in other areas of the University to assist with information gathering, consultation in their area of expertise, and/or follow-up.
Most often, referred community members will work directly with one of our case managers or Deans of Students. Check out our “Meet Case Management” page to learn more about them!
Though some of its members represent offices which are involved in crisis response, the CARE Team is not tasked with responding to emergencies.
During an emergency or if you are in need of immediate assistance or consultation, contact WFU Police 24/7 at 336.758.5911.
