Hello from the RVCC CARES Team! CARES stands for Campus Assessment, Response, and Evaluation. Our team consists of professionals from multiple areas of the College. We meet bi-monthly to evaluate students of concern and connect them with appropriate resources.
The RVCC CARES Team is committed to supporting the well-being, safety, and success of our students through proactive intervention and resource referrals. We strive to promote an inclusive, safe, and welcoming culture at RVCC.
