Pack CARES

The Pack CARES Team is a campus resource dedicated to assisting students, faculty and staff who may be in distress or who may be experiencing challenging or difficult life circumstances. The Pack CARES Team also provides consultation and intervention resources when students exhibit aggressive, concerning, or disruptive behaviors. If you are worried about a CSU Pueblo student who may be struggling or whose behavior is concerning, please submit a Pack CARES Referral by visiting https://www.csupueblo.edu/student-affairs/pack-cares/index.html
