The Whittier CARES program provides prevention, assessment, and intervention for and with students as they navigate the challenges that stand in their way of academic and personal success.
Whittier’s CARE team meets weekly to review reports and develop individualized outreach plans to help students. Team members adhere to legal, ethical, and professional standards and guidelines.
Faculty, staff, students and other members of the Whittier College community are encouraged to alert the CARE Team concerning behaviors or incidents by submitting a CARE Form. Although submissions are not reviewed outside regular business hours, all submissions are promptly reviewed and addressed by a member of the CARE team. If you have questions or would like to consult, please contact Student Affairs Resource Case Manager, Marysol Mendoza firstname.lastname@example.org, 562.907.5118.
The CARE Academic Support Referral is specifically for academic-related concerns and can be submitted by a faculty or staff member. Faculty and staff must first attempt to contact the student directly via email, in-person, or phone call, before submitting this form. If you have questions or would like to consult, please contact Associate Director of Center for Academic Support, Jessica Hernandez, email@example.com.
