C.A.R.E - Campus Assessment Response and Evaluation

The CARE Team is a team of appointed professionals responsible for identifying, assessing, and responding to concerns and/or disruptive behaviors by students who may threaten the well-being or safety of themselves or the campus community. The Team collaboratively and purposefully intervenes to provide support resources to students who are experiencing difficulties. The CARE process also provides members of the campus community who have concerns regarding students’ behavior, with an avenue to report these concerns. Once the CARE referral form is received, the CARE Team will identify assistance and/or referral recommendation options to the student. The CARE team will consult with administrators, faculty, staff and other students affected by the behaviors of the student. The CARE team will also make recommendations to University officials regarding appropriate action consistent with University policy and local, state and federal law.

College students experience great challenges and adjustments in both their academic and personal lives. Many new and important decisions are made during these years. Change is constant, and stress often accompanies these new experiences.

The Office of Counseling Services provides a private and confidential setting for students to discuss these multifaceted changes, cope with their challenges and make thoughtful decisions. Counseling services are free for Bryant students. Students who are experiencing serious emotional difficulties, or who require specialized or longer-term treatment, can receive referrals to professional services off campus. The staff adhere to state and federal laws regarding confidentiality and privacy; counseling records are not part of the academic record. The Office of Counseling Services also offers wellness programming and support programs: weekly yoga and mindfulness meditation classes, The Student Support Network, ADHD support, and other topic groups as requested.

If you need academic accommodations for a mental health or a psychiatric disability, please contact Dr. Noelle Harris, Assistant Dean and Director of Counseling and Religious and Spiritual Life at nharris@bryant.edu or call 401-232-6045 for a consultation.
