Assessment and Care Team (ACT)
Mission Statement
The Assessment and Care Team consists of a multi-disciplinary group of ACC employees including counselors, faculty, police, and student services staff. The ACT is committed to providing ACC staff, employees and students with supportive resources through a practical, collaborative, and thoughtful approach to the prevention, identifica­tion, assessment, intervention and holistic management of situations that may be disruptive in a student’s academic progress or to the well-being of campus employees. To educate and empower all members of the College com­munity, resources and procedures are available to prevent, deter, and respond to concerns. The ACT offers assistance to departments and individuals in determining indicators that may be of concern along with resources to support the learning environment.

Reporting Concerns To The ACT

ACT Report Form

Email: ACareTeam@alvincollege.edu

Report all incidents and concerns that you have regarding an individual's behavior to the ACT, including as much detail as possible about the behavior/incident. Use your judgment as to what should be reported, erring on the side of over-reporting if in doubt.

Reporting an individual in crisis does not preclude taking additional action such as contacting the Director of Advising Services, Campus Police or the Vice President of Student Services, etc. This action should then be followed by completing the Assessment and Care Team (ACT) Form
