CARE Team

The Cal State LA CARE Team serves as a core resource for faculty and staff to refer “students of concern.” This means students who are profoundly struggling, overwhelmed, experiencing unforeseen traumatic experiences or basic needs insecurity, etc. This also means students whose behavior is causing alarm or significant disruption.

Community Care is a new program at Cal State LA dedicated to fostering a safe, welcoming environment through a transformative justice lens. The program relies on trained Community Care Advocates to assess and peacefully diffuse a situation that may be of concern, minimizing the need to involve public safety.
