The Care Team is comprised of College officials who meet regularly to review students of concern. Information that you have about students who may be in distress, in need of medical attention, who may pose a threat to self or others, or who are experiencing difficulty with the transition to college, should be reported to a member of the Care Team. Additionally, if you have concerns about a student's academic performance, please report those concerns as there may be underlying issues that Care Team can address. This centralized team will investigate your concerns and provide timely and appropriate intervention.
If you are concerned about a student's immediate health, safety, or welfare, please call the Campus Safety Office (540-375-2310). Campus Safety staff members can assist you with assessing the situation and determining if immediate action is necessary or if a referral to the Care Team might be more appropriate.
