Care Report

*Please read the following information carefully before submitting a report.

The form below is for faculty and staff to submit a CARE REPORT.  As Wentworth faculty and staff, due to the large amount of time you spend with students, often you are the first to identify when a student is struggling or engaging in behavior that is worrisome.  Some examples include, but are not limited to:

  • a student not attending class on a regular basis
  • a student not caring for personal hygiene
  • a student acting in a lethargic manner
  • a student writing concerning essays
  • a student experiencing mood changes (aggression, crying, short tempered, etc)
  • a student appears to be isolated from peers

In order for us to best support our students, it is important that the Institute is made aware of this information so appropriate resources and services can be offered.

CARE reports are reviewed by the Dean of Students and the Director of Community Standards.  Based on the information received, a team of staff will assess the best plan for outreach.   If more information is needed to best determine the necessary next step, the Dean of Students will contact you directly to follow up.

We thank you in advance for your care of Wentworth students.  By taking the time to complete this CARE report, you have shown your commitment to the holistic approach needed to best support our students.  

Reporting Guidelines

Your report should be as detailed as possible, listing the individuals involved as well as any witnesses. The statement should include dates, times, locations and specific information regarding your concern, or the behavior causing your concern. The Institute does NOT accept anonymous reports and therefore does not guarantee your anonymity as the originator of the report.  Also, due to the federal privacy mandates, you may not be privy to the outcome of any action taken. 

Important tips for submitting information:

  • This is NOT for use in an emergency.  If you witness a situation that threatens the health or safety of another individual, please contact Public Safety at 617-989-4444.

  • Be as exact and precise as possible in your report, recording every useful detail including quotes if you can remember them.

  • Keep your report clear of vagueness.  Instead of “caused a stir,” use the exact happening – “yelled and jumped on a desk.” 

  • Please provide details in sequence, as they happened.

You must have a valid Wentworth e-mail account to submit a report.
