Campus Assistance Response and Engagement (CARE)

Welcome to our Campus Community and the CARE Website.

This site contains information to assist you in accessing on and off campus resources. Specifically, resources such as food security, housing needs, mental health, medical services, alcohol and other drug treatment, and other basic need resources are shared. The general purpose of CARE is to be a safe and trusting campus resource to assist and support students navigating with non-academic needs and issues.
If you have any questions you can contact our office at (707) 826-3504 or email us.
The CARE Services office is located in the Dean of Students Office on the HSU campus, in Siemens Hall 211.

The Mission

The Campus Assistance Response and Engagement (CARE) program’s primary mission is to support the wellbeing and success of Humboldt State University students. The CARE Services Program supports student success by facilitating referrals, support and advocacy through non-clinical interventions. CARE also provides follow-up services in collaboration with parents, guardians, community agencies, other university departments and stakeholders in the student’s success. Depending on the nature of the situation, CARE will consult with HSU offices impacted by the crisis. Our program abides by FERPA laws, which means we are a private not confidential resource.

  • Referrals and community resources
  • Academic support including notifying professors regarding missed classes, dropping a class, withdrawal
  • Consultation for the university community regarding students in distress
