About NC State Cares

Belltower Abstract

Student Behavioral Case Management at NC State (also known as NC State Cares) was established in 2014 to provide support for students in crisis or who have been identified as exhibiting concerning or worrisome behaviors.

The program works closely with campus resources to provide early intervention for students who may be struggling personally or whose behavior has led others to be concerned for their well-being.  Case managers meet with students and provide access to resources while following up with them and monitoring their progress.

Our Mission

The case managers at NC State work collaboratively with campus resources to provide support for students who are in crisis or who are identified as exhibiting concerning or worrisome behaviors. Effective case management ensures that the community at large remains safe while the student involved gains the necessary resources to remain successful academically and personally at NC State. The case managers do this by:

  • Providing comprehensive outreach and consultation services to the NC State community in order to proactively identify students who are struggling
  • Providing early intervention and behaviorally based assessments to determine appropriate resources and referrals to campus and community resources.
  • Working constructively with students to foster resilience and self-advocacy
  • Monitoring student progress
