The UIC Campus Awareness, Response, & Education (CARE) Team is a multi-disciplinary group of campus officials that work in a proactive and collaborative approach to respond to non-emergency concerns. The CARE team works to intervene early and develop appropriate courses of action for referred students. Our goal is to support students who may be in distress and/or whose behavior is of concern to others before they arise to a crisis.

The CARE Team is dedicated to providing support services for students to create the most enriching experience at UIC. The CARE Team offers a variety of educational, emotional, and financial services through collaboration with the University and surrounding community partnerships to aid students in their needs for assistance. The CARE Team works to develop Care plans to support students in their success at UIC and to establish a pathway for post graduate success. The CARE Team focuses on maintaining a positive environment that is conducive to the overall well being of students. The CARE Team provides liaisons from a multitude of departments within the University to be able to offer a variety of assistance plans tailored to each individual student.
