While the start of every new academic year is both hopeful
and challenging, this fall, students, new and continuing, may be particularly
concerned about national news, life-threatening weather, and acts of incivility
and racism on our campus.
To assist you as you respond to students with concerns, know
that academic a-deans in the student’s college or other members of the Concern
and Response Team (CART) are a resource for you. The CART website has links to
both relevant policies and the list of CART members. Contact a member of
CART for more information; Rhonda Luckey (firstname.lastname@example.org),
vice president for Student Affairs; or Dan Burkett (email@example.com), dean’s associate.
