The Bentley Care Team
Promoting community well-being by helping students achieve personal and academic success
The well-being and success of our students is our priority. Submitting a Care referral helps to identify students who may be experiencing challenges and connect them with the resources or services they may need.
Community members who are concerned about a student are encouraged to talk with the student whenever feasible and then make a referral to an appropriate resource if necessary. Any direct conversation with a student can be supplemented by a referral to the Care Team and/or any resource on campus.
If you have a non-urgent concern about a student, please review the information on this website and submit a Care referral. Please note that Care referrals are only reviewed during University business hours (Monday through Friday 8:30am- 4:30pm). After reviewing your referral, a member of the Care Team will reach out to you and coordinate outreach to the student as appropriate.
In cases of emergency, referrers must contact University Police (781.891.3131) for on-campus emergencies or 911 for off-campus emergencies first if the person of concern poses an immediate threat to self or others or if the individual experiences a medical emergency (e.g. seizure, loss of consciousness). The Care Team plays a secondary role to all urgent circumstances and should be contacted only after initial emergency notifications are made.
If you are unsure whether or not to submit a Care referral, we encourage you to review our FAQs. If you're still unsure, contact the Associate Director of Student Support Services at 781-216-7115 or the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs at 781-891-2161 Monday through Friday, 8:30am- 4:30pm.
