CARE stands for Campus Assessment, Resource, and Education. Living, learning, and working at Boise State University can be very stressful at times. All members of the university community, including students, faculty, and staff, will face challenges. As a result, some individuals may exhibit behavior that is concerning, disruptive, or threatening towards themselves or others. Boise State has established the CARE Team to provide assistance to the campus community in addressing these behaviors of concern.
