Campus Awareness, Response & Education - Central Virginia Community College

Campus Awareness, Response & Education (CARE)

CARE Purpose:

In interacting with students across the CVCC Campus, including Main Campus, Amherst, Appomattox and Bedford, faculty and staff may become concerned with a student, employee or visitor on campus that appears to be disruptive or display behaviors of concern related to the safety of others. The Threat Assessment Team (TAT) entitled Campus Awareness; Response & Education Team (CARE) specifically addresses the college's position on prevention, reduction and management of violence to provide a safe working and learning environment for our students, employees and visitors at all college owned, controlled or leased properties and locations.
  • This Campus Awareness, Response & Education Team (CARE) was developed in accordance with the College and University Behavior Intervention Team (CUBIT) model introduced by the National Center for Higher Education Risk Managements in response to the Governor's Panel Report on the Virginia Tech shootings and in accordance with the Recommended Practices for Virginia College Threat Assessment by Dewey Cornell, Ph.D. of the University of Virginia.
  • It is recommended a Threat Assessment Team be established to:
    1. Focus primarily on case management and policy in relation to violence prevention and safety on campus, including assessment and intervention with individuals whose behavior poses a threat to the safety of the campus community.
    2. The CARE Team will establish educational and prevention programs and determination of policies and procedures in order to facilitate safety and prevention on all campus locations through coordination and communication.
