CARE Team: Coordination, Assistance, Response, and Education
The CARE Team (Coordination, Assistance, Response, and Education) is a team of staff who support all students through challenges they may experience during their time at MIT. While MIT has many resources to support students, the CARE Team recognizes it can often be overwhelming for students to navigate all of the support available to them.
A primary function of the CARE Team is to support students during hospitalizations, discharge, and with follow up care. The CARE Team is a student-focused resource that empowers students to be in control of their own personal information, treatment plans, and future. With student consent, the CARE Team will also work with families of students to support them while they are supporting their loved ones.
The CARE Team works closely with other offices that support students including, but not limited to:
· Student Support Services
· Office for Graduate Education
· Student Disability Services
· Alcohol and Other Drug Services
· Residential Education
· Mental Health and Counseling
