The CARE (Coordination, Assessment, Response, and Education) Team at York County Community College exists to assist with situations that could potentially disrupt a student’s academic, educational, or social wellbeing. We hope to intervene early when possible, to help support the student. The cross-departmental team reviews individual cases and coordinates an appropriate action plan for response.


  • To aid in the cultivation of a college-wide culture of communication, collaboration and proactive intervention.
  • To provide holistic intervention and resource referral to ensure students have the tools they need to be successful both at York County and in their lives.
  • To promote a safe educational environment for students, staff, faculty, and our community.
  • To further educate the York County community on best practices related to identifying and managing disruptive or harmful student behavior.
