Student Case Management and Care Team
Student Case Managers respond to all members of the university community to assist with the navigation of university policy and process and connect individuals to available supports.
The Care Team is a collaborative interdisciplinary team of campus members that meets weekly to identify ways in which to proactively support students of concern. The Team's primary function is to support the safety of the university community and connect students of concern to available support services. The Care Team is chaired by the Director of Student Affairs and consists of a team of professionals from several university units including Student Affairs, Residences, International Student Services, Accessibility Services, Counselling, Campus Security, and Office of Safety & Emergency Management.
Anyone in the campus community who has concerns for a student experiencing difficulty can contact Early Alert. Early Alert engages faculty and staff in identifying students experiencing academic difficulty and connects those students to TRU resources and support services.
The sooner a student experiencing difficulty is connected to the Early Alert Learning Strategist, the more time the student will have to improve their academic performance and successfully complete their course or program.
