What is the Student Care Team?

Student Care Team

As a result of growing safety issues and concerns on college campuses, Oregon State University - Cascades developed a Student Care Team (SCT). The SCT addresses student behaviors that are indicative of crisis and elevated concern. The goal of the SCT is to promote the safety and health of students which, in turn, aids in the well-being of our overall OSU-Cascades community. The SCT consists of a group of qualified and dedicated OSU-Cascades professionals who collaborate together as they focus on:

  • Eliminating fragmented care and information

  • Providing a structured method for addressing student needs and behaviors that impact the university community

  • Balancing the individual needs of the student and those of the greater campus community

  • Initiating appropriate intervention and resource connections

The Student Care Team is comprised of representatives from the Student Success, Student Wellness, Campus Safety, Residential Education, Student Conduct and Community Standards, Disability Access Services, Academic Affairs, and Student Care from Corvallis as needed.

OSU-Cascades faculty and staff are in a unique position to interact with students both inside and outside of the classroom. The SCT addresses concerns about student behavior that may be disruptive to the integrity of the learning environment and the greater campus community.
