Avila Care Team
Avila Care Team (ACT)
The Avila Care Team affirms the mission and values of Avila University by responding with care and compassion to the personal crises which may impact any member of the Avila community.
When a member of the Avila community experiences a crisis or serious problem in their life, we ask that those aware of it bring the situation to the attention of an ACT member. The team will discuss the best and most sensitive way to support the person in need. For example, an instructor reports to the ACT that a resident student has been missing class and appears depressed. An ACT member or a Resident Assistant that has a good relationship with that student will check in with the student and refer the student to the appropriate resources.
If you have particular concerns about a student or other member(s) of the Avila community you have three avenues in which to share this information:
- You may complete the Avila Care Team (ACT) form
- If you wish to share information anonymously, you may call 866.943.5787 and leave a message for ACT.
- If you wish to share information and are concerned about privacy issues related to completing the form, please contact any member of ACT listed below.
If you are concerned about the immediate safety of a member of the Avila community, please call 911 or Campus Safety at 816.985.6079.
