CONCERN and response Team (CART)

Parkland College is concerned about the care, welfare, safety, and security of all of its students, faculty, and staff, and is committed to providing an environment in which individuals are free to work, learn, and teach, unencumbered and uninhibited by threats of intimidation and harm.
Faculty, staff, and friends often are among the first to notice when a member of the Parkland College community is distressed or behaving in a potentially dangerous or disruptive manner. Difficulties with academic progress, personal relationships, or daily behavior often indicate a need for assistance. The Concern and Response Team (CART) will use a collaborative approach to assess and proactively respond when an individual’s behavior causes concern.
CART is committed to continually assessing and evaluating its function and protocols over time as best practices are identified and refined.  We invite all suggestions to improve our services and resources.
