In FY10, the Care Team received 145 reports. About one half of the reports originated from complaints about students’ disruptive behavior. The other half of the reports centered on concern for students’ emotional well-being. The largest number of Care reports in FY10 originated from UAA staff members, followed by faculty members, followed by students. The following table shows the source and quantity of Care reports.
Over the past year, the Care Team learned that most students of concern have more than one factor in their lives influencing their behavior. Therefore, the Care Team developed a list of approximately 40 different descriptors of student behavior. The Care Team uses multiple descriptors to describe student behavior in each Care report. The following list shows the top eleven descriptors of students’ behavior from the 145 Care Reports received in FY10.
