The NKU Community Care Team, formerly the Students of Concern Committee, is the behavioral intervention team for the Northern Kentucky University and is interdisciplinary in its makeup. The NKU Community Care Team members provide guidance to the Dean of Students staff on reports received related to students experiencing academically or socially disruptive situations and concerns. The NKU Community Care Team meets regularly during the academic year to provide guidance to Dean of Students staff on these reports and to advance collaborative solutions for the NKU campus community.

The NKU Community Care Team is charged with:

  • Maintaining a safe campus environment that is conducive to student success while balancing its concern for individual students
  • Use reasonable discretion, based on a record of relevant materials, in order to make informed decisions that are in the best interest of the student(s) involved and the NKU campus community
  • Promote greater engagement of the University community with efforts to report and advocate for students in need of NKU community support
