Balancing life and school can be difficult. At CU Denver, every student matters. The CARE team was created to help students navigate a wide variety of life’s challenges by creating plans to confront difficulties while providing support and resources to keep them safe and successful. If you believe your student is facing challenges, we encourage you to submit at CARE report to connect them with our friendly and compassionate team. Together we can help them get through difficult times and get back on track.
