CARES: Consultation • Assessment • Referral • Education @ StarkThe CARES Team at Kent State University at Stark exists to gather isolated concerns in one location to be examined as possible patterns of behavior and to coordinate a supportive, positive outreach toward students with concerning behavior when appropriate. The cross-functional team prefers to take a proactive approach, focusing on early interventions toward distressing student behavior in an attempt to change the behavior before the situation escalates.
The CARES Team will make its best effort to evaluate and respond to each submitted concern. However, the CARES Team is not a law enforcement agency. All emergency matters should be reported immediately to 911 and all criminal or safety matters should be reported immediately to your local police or to university personnel.
