What is the CARE Team?

The Concerns Assessment, Referral, & Education (CARE) Team is a group of professionals from across the campus and across disciplines that reviews cases and implements timely interventions for student situations where student behavior raises concern. The goal is always to fashion a careful and appropriate outreach or intervention to students who are struggling in or outside the classroom and to monitor students in need.

Report a student concern.

If you are concerned about an AIC student, please use the link below to alert the AIC CARE Team immediately.

If this is an emergency (such as a student with the intent to cause harm to self or others) please call Campus Police at (413) 205-3333. Do NOT put emergencies through this form as we can not guarantee that it will be seen immediately.
