    What happens once I submit a referral?

    Once a Pack CARES Referral is submitted it is reviewed by a member of the Pack CARES Team.  Then, the following actions may be taken:    

    • The Team may reach out to you to confirm the referral has been received, ask clarifying questions and discuss next steps.
    • The Team may gather additional information to help guide recommendations.
    • The Team may educate the referral source on how to assist the student (i.e. making a referral to a campus resource), if the person submitting the referral is comfortable doing so and if appropriate, given the nature of what has been shared.
    • The Team may reach out to the student directly to request a meeting, to submit a referral, or to take other action.
    • The Team may refer the situation to the Student Conduct process, if there is evidence of a violation of the Student Code of Conduct. The Pack CARES Team may provide consultation to the Student Conduct Officer in these cases.
    • The Team may share information with the police or campus and community agencies with applicable services/jurisdiction.
    • The Team may monitor the student's behavior for any trends/future behaviors.
