“Without a sense of caring, there can be no sense of community.”
– Anthony J. D’Angelo
The Community of Care provides timely intervention for those experiencing academic or personal difficulties.
We provide strategies and resources on- and off-campus to help students succeed at Sacramento City College. Any member of the community can make a referral.
The program is just another example of how Sacramento City College cares and supports its students. By using a case management model, Care Team members are able to work with students individually to personalize interventions that assist the student in overcoming the barriers preventing their success.
What Is a Care Report?
- Reporting: Utilizing the existing SARS Early Alert software, community members identify any student-related concerns. Reporters are encouraged to share anything from academic, emotional to physical behaviors which appear to be impeding their success.
- Notification: Upon submission, the student is notified (if desired), as well as the Care Team.
- Case Management: The Care Team assigns the report to a case manager for intervention and resolution.
