Madison Cares is a centralized program for departments, students, parents, and community members to refer or consult about students of concern. We will operate as an extended arm to students experiencing varying levels of social, emotional, academic, or mental-health stressors.

Students, university personnel, community members, or family members can submit a Care Referral online about a student they are concerned about through the Madison Cares program. We will respond and address any concerns by providing care outreach, university resources, and direct support. We want our campus partners and students to understand the potential at-risk indicators, to refer students of concern to Madison Cares, and to respond to the call of reaching out and caring for our students in need!
