UAB is concerned about the safety, health and well-being of all of its students. Policies outlining community expectations and regulations exist to safeguard the campus welfare. These policies identify activities and behaviors that are disruptive to the mission of the university. They specifically highlight the need to report and intervene with any threats of harm whether directed to self or others.
The Care Team’s purpose is to discuss and debrief about significant campus situations, collaborate on positive solutions, and to follow up as needed in order to promote the well-being of our student body. The Care Team aims to identify distressed, disruptive, disturbed or dysregulated students and to consult together about ways to effectively and appropriately intervene.
