About the CARE Team

The CARE (Coordination, Assessment, Response, and Education) Team exists to assist with any situation that could potentially disrupt a student's academic, social, or emotional wellbeing within the Tennessee Tech community. Our goal is to identify students of concern early to provide interventions to help support the student. The team reviews individual cases and coordinates an appropriate action plan for response.

The team consists of:

      • Dean of Students
      • Executive Director of Residential Life
      • Director of Counseling Center
      • Chief of University Police
      • Title IX Coordinator
      • Associate Provost
      • Clinical Coordinator

The CARE team does not replace other classroom management or disciplinary processes nor does it address student behaviors that require immediate attention.

If a student’s behavior poses an imminent safety concern for the student in question or others or the general campus community, call University Police immediately at 931-372-3234 or 911.

The Counseling Center publishes guidance on addressing a Mental Health Emergency. Contact the Counseling Center at 931-372-3331 for more information

If you have questions or have comments regarding the CARE Team, contact the Dean of Students at (931) 372-6758 or 

CARE TEAM Referral
