KnightCARE stands for Campus Awareness Response and Evaluation. WGTC’s KnightCARE is a multidisciplinary team comprised of staff, faculty, and law enforcement officials that proactively responds to situations that may pose a threat to the safety of the WGTC community.
KnightCARE handles a range of issues, including:
- mental health concerns
- threatening or violent behaviors
- substance use issues
- suicide risk or suicidal ideation
- stalking or harassing behaviors
- relationship problems affecting school or work
- or other concerns.
Members of the WGTC community can report a concern about themselves or another student or staff member who might benefit from support by filling out a KnightCARE report form.
When a report is received, the KnightCARE team conducts a professional assessment to help understand each person’s individual need and to evaluate risk levels when a person’s behavior may endanger their own or others’ health and safety. After each report has been evaluated, the KnightCARE team implements a timely intervention specifically tailored to address the needs of the individuals involved. KnightCARE works to ensure that WGTC students and staff access the specific resources they need as quickly as possible.
