CARE Team Referral

To refer a student: CARE Team Referral Form

The CARE Team is part of Binghamton University’s Office of the Dean of Students. The
mission of the CARE Team is to provide support, care, and advocacy for students who need it.

Who can make referrals?

Faculty, staff, family members, students, or any concerned person can refer a student to the CARE Team by filling out the referral form. Once completed, someone from the CARE Team will follow up as appropriate. This follow-up process may include the student, referring party and/or any other identified persons.

Some indicators of a person in need of assistance include:

  • personality changes
  • changes in behavior
  • lack of engagement
  • aggression

Is all information confidential?

While we provide privacy, we cannot guarantee confidentiality. Case managers are mandated reporters, therefore any information provided that poses threat or harm to self and/or others must be reported to the appropriate persons, including the University Police Department. Otherwise, case managers only share information on a need-to-know basis.

Completing the referral form creates a referral to the CARE Team only. Based on the
information provided and level of intervention determined, this could include outreach from a case manager, the student may be referred to the Students of Concern Committee, or possibly review by the Threat Assessment Team. Either way, all students referred will receive appropriate intervention based on their unique situations.
