The CARE Team operates with these regulations and principles in mind:
- Students’ privacy rights are protected by law and University policy, and will be maintained throughout in accordance with FERPA and HIPAA. Every effort will be made to protect the identity of the reporter, if that is the reporter’s wish.
- Students with mental health issues or illnesses can succeed at Ohio University and every attempt will be made to support this outcome. However, in some cases students may be unable to pursue studies because of their condition.
- Recognizing that the behavior of individuals can have a profound impact on the community, a balance must be maintained between a desire to support individual students and the safety and well-being of the community.
