The Care Team is comprised of representatives from student success, academic affairs and student affairs who meet regularly to discuss and develop interventions for individual student behavior before it escalates and becomes detrimental to the individual student or the Longwood community.
The Team examines available information about the student and situation, including strategies already implemented to deal with the behavior, when developing other possible interventions. The Team also looks at patterns of student behavior to identify the need for new policy or programmatic action that the institution may need to consider implementing (e.g. sexual assault, alcohol abuse, misuse of medical withdrawal, etc
Broadly, the Care Team addresses:
The Care Team wants faculty, staff, fellow students, and family members to share concerns about student behavior that they feel is detrimental to the student him/herself or the community. However, it is important that we - as an institution that values diversity - understand that behaviors that may be unique or eccentric are not always detrimental, dangerous or threatening.
To express concern about a student, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact our office at 434.395.2485
