Care Team

The Care Team is comprised of representatives from academic 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:

  • Behaviors that impair academic effectiveness when it is suspected that such behaviors are more than the result of irresponsible choices;
  • Behavior that is so disruptive that it impacts the ability of the individual or others to successfully participate in campus life;
  • Behavior that is dangerous to self and/or others.

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 careteam@longwood.edu or contact our office at 434.395.2485
