CARE Network


Do you know a student who could use extra support? Please use the CARE Network Report form.

At GW, we aim to create a Colonial community that cares for one another. From the moment students arrive on campus, they begin to find their place at the university. The college experience can often be challenging, and asking for help can be difficult. The CARE Network reaches out to offer support so that students can be as successful as possible through graduation.

The CARE Network is a cross-departmental support system which recognizes that student concerns are often multi-faceted. Students are connected to resources through inter-departmental collaboration to provide them with appropriate and personalized outreach.

Students, parents, faculty and staff can identify students that may need additional support through an online form. Based on the type of support needed, a student is connected to a trained staff member who works with them one-on-one for as long as they may need the help.

Challenges are part of the college experience; through the CARE Network, students are given the support they need to persist and succeed at GW and beyond.

Are you concerned about a student's threatening behavior to the GW community?

The Threat Assessment Team is a cross-functional team comprised of a variety of university offices that addresses concerns about threatening behavior that could result in violence directed towards the students, faculty, and staff of the George Washington University. The goal of the Threat Assessment Team is to evaluate behavior that individuals perceive as warning signs for future violent or self-destructive actions. The team can be rapidly convened in order to assess situations whenever they arise. Concerning and threatening behavior can occur in a variety of ways, and all threats should be taken seriously.

Call the Team through GWPD at (202) 994-6111 if someone's actions, words, or writing makes you feel threatened or concerned in any way. A call to GWPD will activate the Team.

Do you have a concern about a GW staff or faculty member?

The CARE Network is exclusively for current GW students. If you have a concern about the behavior of a GW staff or faculty member, please email [email protected].
