At GW, we aim to create a community that cares for each other. The CARE Team fosters this goal by creating a pathway through which students who may need additional support can be identified and referred to the most appropriate services. Through the CARE Team, students are given the support they need to persist and succeed at GW and beyond

The CARE Team is not an emergency system.

Reports are monitored Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00 am and 6:00 pm. If a report requires immediate outreach or follow-up or is an emergency please contact GW Emergency Services at 202-994-6111.



The CARE Referral Process

How It Works

Students, parents, faculty, and staff can identify students that may need additional support through the CARE Team’s online form. The CARE Team is a cross-departmental support system that recognizes that student concerns are often multi-faceted. Students are connected to resources through inter-departmental collaboration to provide them with appropriate and personalized outreach.

Lifecycle of a CARE Referral

Step One: CARE Referral Submitted; Step Two: CARE Team Evaluates Referral; Step Three: Assignment to Campus Partner; Step Four: Initial Outreach Conducted by Campus Partner; Step Five: Follow-Up from CARE Team to Campus Partner; Step Six: Concern Requires Additional Follow Up and/or Concern Resolved
