CARE Team

The Naropa University Student CARE Team strives to enforce the fact that students do not have to tackle difficulties on their own. The team, based out of the Dean of Students Office, serves as a dispatch and case management team for students who are going through a challenging time due to various life circumstances. Transition, academic progress and behavior, overall wellbeing, basic needs, and conflict resolution are all areas that can present challenges. Referrals for academic, wellbeing, student conduct, and interpersonal conflict can be sent to this team of Naropa staff who are committed to connecting students to on and off campus resources that promote student success.

The CARE team consists of representatives from the offices below:

  • Dean of Students
  • Title IX
  • Counseling and Wellness
  • Academic Advising and Student Success

How to Report a Concern?

If you are worried about a student, please complete a CARE team referral through the Naropa Reporting Form.

What Happens Once a Report Is Received?

When a report is sent it goes into a secure database only accessible to individuals with a connection to the CARE team. Once the report is received, it is reviewed by a member of the CARE team who will then send an outreach to the student. That outreach could be an email, phone call, or an in person visit. Once contact has been made, the student will receive resources and support to chart out how they would like to move forward.

Please note, the CARE team follow-up strategies, outreaches and outcomes are confidential and generally, will not be shared, except on a need-to-know-basis. Student information and their educational records are protected under the FERPA. Thank you for understanding, and supporting our students.
