Ogeechee Technical College

Identifying, Assessing, and Reducing Threats

Colleges and universities around the country are becoming more diligent and proactive in providing a safe environment for students, faculty, staff, and visitors to their campuses. The Campus Assessment Response Evaluation (CARE) Team is dedicated to a proactive, coordinated and planned approach to the identification, prevention, assessment, management, and reduction of interpersonal and behavioral threats to the safety and well-being of Ogeechee Technical College students, faculty, staff, and visitors.

Campus Members’ Responsibilities

It is the responsibility of faculty, staff, and students to immediately report any situation that could possibly result in harm to anyone at the College. These reports may be directed to the CARE Team or the Counseling Center, depending on the nature of the concern.

When there is an active or immediate risk of violence or harm to others you should call Ogeechee Technical College Campus Police 912-681-5667 or 912-531-7264.

How Do I Report a Concern?

In non-emergency situations, you may fill out an online concern report, call, send an email to or submit an anonymous report.

Behaviors of concern might be observed in a number of settings: in the classroom, at a service location or office, at an on-campus job, or during participation at an extracurricular activity. By reporting behaviors that are concerning, the Campus Assessment Response Evaluation (CARE) Team will be able to reach out to students to intervene, provide support, and connect them with resources that can assist them.

The CARE Team process does not replace faculty classroom management, disciplinary processes, and/or public safety responses to incidents.

The Campus Assessment Response Evaluation (CARE) Team Model works within all current college policies and serves as a model to formalize current informal processes at the College.
