While students on Clemson’s campus deal with many challenging situations every day, the CARE Network is designed to track those incidents which are deemed “critical” and/or which may indicate unusual or harmful student behavior or trends. This includes but is not limited to:
The death of a family member, friend, fellow student or other individual in the student’s life.
Any unusual or otherwise troubling behavior by the student directed towards themselves or others.
Any wellness issue which is of immediate or serious nature including: emergency hospitalizations, life-threatening illnesses, alleged assaults, acute injuries, etc.
Any critical incident or unusual behavior reported by a member of the university community which may be helpful for tracking and follow up. (i.e. excessive absence in classes, excessive sleeping or changing habits, etc.)
Any unusual, harmful or critical situation which happens to a Clemson University student and is not listed above.
CARE reports are NOT reviewed outside of business hours. Business hours are Monday – Friday, 8:00am – 4:30pm. The office is closed on all university holidays.
If the person you have concerns about poses a threat of harm to self or others, please call the Clemson University Police Department immediately at (864) 656-2222.
If support is needed from the Dean of Students Office, CUPD will contact our Dean on Call. We have a staff member on-call to respond to emergencies as needed.

Within one (1) business day staff will review and determine appropriate next steps for ALL CARE reports.
Staff will follow up with persons who submit CARE reports only when additional information is needed; however, if you have questions about a report you filed, please call us.
