CARE Team (Campus Advocacy Response Team)
Paul Smith’s College Coordinated Community Response Team
The CARE Team is a team that involves stakeholders within faculty and staff, external partners and students that are all brought together by the mission to reduce sexual violence and create a safer campus for students, staff, faculty, and visitors. It is essential that we work to reach marginalized communities and take into account the extra barriers those communities may face in accessing help, healing, support, and safety.
