What happens to a VandalCARE report?
All VandalCARE reports are submitted and stored through our secure software database. We utilize Advocate by Simplicity, a specific software that many colleges and universities use in their CARE and conduct processes. Only designated staff members have access to these reports, and they are protected as a part of FERPA regulations. VandalCARE reports are not noted in your transcripts or sent to other faculty or staff.
Once a VandalCARE report is sent in, a case manager reviews the report to determine what the best initial action would be for that situation. Sometimes this is an email or phone call to check in on the person, while other times it might be a meeting. Some reports may be referred to the VandalCARE Team for help in coordinating outreach or resources.
Above is a flow chart of the life cycle of a VandalCARE report. While this chart does not account for all reports, it is a general process overview.
