CMU adheres to Core Values of integrity, respect, compassion, inclusiveness, social responsibility, excellence, and innovation. Above all, Care prioritizes the safety of the individual and the community. Care serves the CMU community with a focus on engaging in proactive and collaborative approaches to identify, assess, and support students, faculty, and staff. We encourage our CMU community to support students by filing a Care report. Within one business day of receiving the Care Report, the Care Team will initiate outreach to check in with the student, discuss the semester, identify appropriate and helpful resources, and assist the student to engage resources if desired. Resources and supports are available to help students in many areas including academic, financial, food and housing concerns, and health and well-being.
In addition to Care's initial outreach to support students, the Care Team meets weekly to review reports and provide dynamic support and resources to students, staff, and faculty.
Currently, this group is comprised of a representative from Residence Life, CMU Police, Office of Student Conduct, Student Disability Services, Counseling Center, Veterans Resource Center, Sexual Aggression Services, Athletics, Office of Student Success, and the Office of Student Affairs. Confidential Counseling Center information is NOT shared in Care Team meetings.
