About the NazCares Team 

Mission: Support individuals and the campus community through proactive, collaborative approaches to identify, assess, and mitigate risks to student wellbeing. NazCares encourages community members to refer students for any concerns that hinder students’ personal and academic success. NazCares uses coordinated efforts to provide direct student support addressing concerns and reducing barriers. 

NazCares should not be confused with crisis management – which is active and immediate.

If there is an active or immediate threat or safety concern, contact Campus Safety.


In an emergency: If you are thinking of harming yourself, or have done so, immediately call 911 or Campus Safety, 585-389-2850

Get support: Asking for support is an important life skill and can help you build resilience and wellness. In addition to Campus Safety, there are a host of campus resources available to support students, including from right where you are: Virtual Supports and Services for students.


Recognize and refer! If you are concerned about a student's behavior, reach out so that we can offer help and keep everyone safe.
