About the CARE Team


The mission of the Towson University CARE Team is to coordinate the support resources of Towson University to assist students in being successful academically and in promoting their health and well-being.


The purpose of the CARE Team is to serve as a central network focused on prevention and early intervention in community situations involving students experiencing extreme distress or engaging in harmful or disruptive behaviors. The CARE Team will develop strategies and provide consultations to the university community when concerns arise about a student’s well-being or when a student’s behavior is potentially harmful to self and/or others or is disruptive and/or threatening. This CARE Team will regularly assess these situations in the university community and will recommend actions in accord with existing university policies.


  • Coordinate the university response to potentially harmful/disruptive student situations
  • Develop specific strategies to manage potentially harmful or disruptive behavior by students with regard to safety and rights of others and minimize the disruption to the university community.
  • Make recommendations to university officials on appropriate action regarding the disposition of students’ cases consistent with university policies and procedures.
  • Receive, gather and catalog information about difficult situations involving students. The person maintaining reports for the committee is the Assistant to the Vice President for Students Affairs.
