CARE: Communicate, Advocate, Refer, and Educate

The University of Scranton's Jesuit value of "Cura Personalis" emphasizes the importance of recognizing the individualized needs of each person, with distinct respect for each individual's unique circumstances and concerns.  Therefore, members of The University of Scranton community are committed to supporting student growth, intellectually and personally, so that students can develop emotional resilience.  Such ability enables them to respond to life events in ways that support their well-being and integrity, and prepares them for greater success moving forward.


The CARE (Connect, Advocate, Refer, Educate) Team is an integrated team that meets to discuss and offer informed and planned responses to support students that may be experiencing academic, behavioral, emotional, physical/health, and/or social concerns.  Members of the CARE Team represent departments from across the University and meet on a biweekly basis during the fall and spring semesters.  The CARE Team includes representatives from the Division of Student Life, the Dean's Office/Academic Advising staff from each academic college (i.e., CAS, KSOM, PCPS), and the Center for Teaching & Learning Excellence (CTLE).  The Team's ultimate purpose is to assist students in their academic and co-curricular pursuits, identify appropriate staff/offices to meet with and offer support (i.e., depending upon the student's needs/circumstances), and help the student to identify a course of action related to the identified concerns.
