 Bears that Care


Bears that Care

This year marked the launch of the Bears that Care Initiative. This initiative strives to create a Cal community free of violence by becoming active bystanders who care for one another. Every step counts no matter how small you think it is; the impact can be larger than you know. There are now 45 trained staff/faculty BTC facilitators ready to run BTC workshops this Fall 2012. 


 Students of Concern


Students of Concern Committee

The Students of Concern Committee is a multi-disciplinary body of stakeholders from across the University which receives referrals pertaining to students of concern, collects additional information, and identifies and enacts appropriate strategies for addressing the situation. From October 2011 to May 2012 there were a total of 211 referrals, which average 26 per month. Referrals include: Mental Health, Severe Injuries, Possible Threat to Others, and Displaced & Distressed.
