CLC Cares Services

CLC cares about your academic and personal success, and we know that feeling safe and secure is essential to fulfilling your potential. That’s why we have developed “CLC Cares,” a package of services for promoting the overall well-being of all students.

Helping Students in Crisis

We have established a Behavioral Intervention Team to help students in crisis by assessing the potential risk to self or others and coordinating a college response. The team approach brings together staff from several departments so the best solutions and resources can be applied to each individual situation.

Defining and Upholding Behavioral Standards

We have developed behavioral standards that promote a safe and productive learning environment. The Student Conduct Office is responsible for establishing behavioral standards, informing students of their rights and responsibilities, and managing a fair process to address alleged violations.

Maintaining Strong Compliance with Title IX

The federal Title IX law requires colleges to comply with many requirements relating to sex- and gender-based misconduct, including sexual harassment, sexual violence, sex discrimination and sexual assault prevention. Our Title IX Services are designed to help protect students and ensure compliance with the federal law.
