What is CARE?
CARE, which stands for Continuous Assessment and Responsive Engagement, is a faculty-led initiative aimed at establishing a systematic process for identifying and supporting struggling students. In other words, CARE represents an Early Alert System at Valencia. Through the CARE course, faculty develop their own CARE strategies to teach students the skills to self-assess their study habits “Early” in the semester. Students also learn what adjustments need to be made to improve their academic performance.
