PC Cares is a threat management team that seeks to identify students in distress. Members of PC Cares represent various departments at PC: Academic Affairs, Athletics, Career Services, Campus Police, Community Life, Counseling Services, and Religious Life. Depending on the crisis situation, a plan of intervention is implemented. The interventions range from connecting with appropriate staff to address the concern to an interim administrative withdrawal depending on the severity of the threat. Communication is maintained confidentially and only shared with PC Cares members, or other institutional faculty and staff on a need-to-know basis.
If you believe a student is an imminent threat to him/herself or others, immediately contact Susan Gentry-Wright, Director of Counseling Services or Joy Smith, Vice President of Campus Life.
