What is CARE?

CARE, which stands for Continuous Assessment and Responsive Engagement, is a faculty-led initiative aimed at establishing a systematic process for identifying and supporting struggling students. In other words, CARE represents an Early Alert System at Valencia.

Through the LifeMap Early Alert and Intervention (LFMP 3348) faculty development course, participants will learn about Valencia’s early alert approach, which focuses on student and faculty interactions. The course will improve student learning by developing faculty sensitivity to academic and non-academic needs within their classes. Faculty will learn various resources available to support their students’ needs. They will have the opportunity to develop early alert strategies to improve student learning. With increased awareness of student support resources and practice with human-led early alert strategies, faculty will be better equipped to develop responsive approaches to learning within their classes.
