HSD CARE Referral Information

As a Jesuit institution with a social justice mission, Stritch is a community that puts students first.  The HSD Coordinated Assistance & Resource Education (CARE) referral is an around-the-clock resource for students to refer someone about whom they may have a concern. Students may enter a referral regarding wellness, academic or social concerns.  Once a referral is submitted the Student Affairs team will follow up to connect the student of concern with the appropriate campus resources or simply check-in to offer guidance and support.  All HSD CARE referrals are confidential.  Reporters may choose to remain anonymous.  If you have any questions regarding HSD CARE referral, please feel free to contact Viviana Martinez, Assistant Director for Student Affairs at
