About the CARE Team
Bellevue College has established the CARE Team to assist in addressing situations where students, faculty, or staff are displaying behaviors that are disruptive, threatening or concerning in nature that potentially impede their own or others’ ability to function successfully or safely or may be violating the student code of conduct.
The Concern, Assistance, Resources, and Empowerment (CARE) Team is a multidisciplinary committee with a designee from:
- Disability Resource Center
- Human Resources
- Instructional Dean
- Public Safety
- Student Affairs Dean
- Student Conduct
- Student Housing
- International Education
- Neurodiversity Navigators
- Veterans Centers
The CARE Team procedures are designed to help identify the administrative processes of the college so that we can best serve our students and the college community. Our college’s strategic goal of “Justice for All” (SP 3) is the social and restorative justice foundation that we will build our practice upon in order to address concerns that are reported in an equitable manner.
The CARE Team is dedicated to a proactive, coordinated approach to the identification, prevention, assessment, management and reduction of interpersonal or behavioral threats to the safety and well-being of Bellevue College students, faculty, staff and visitors.
- Provide a safe physical and emotional environment for members of the Bellevue College community
- Provide assistance and resources for the Bellevue College community
- Empower students, faculty and staff to report concerns
- Use social justice and restorative justice models as a foundation for our procedures and practices
