The Bristol CARE Team takes referrals (academic alerts) for students who are experiencing challenges related to academic performance. The CARE Team can also help to make connections to services based on self-reported wellness issues and other issues that may not be addressed through established channels at Bristol. The CARE Team mobilizes available services and resources to support students in a holistic, collaborative manner and to help mitigate barriers to success. The CARE Team also accepts requests for The CARE Fund, which is designed to off-set short-term financial needs of students experiencing setbacks that may prevent them from continuing their education at Bristol Community College. Funds are awarded to current Bristol students who are in good standing with the College. Requests for funding can be submitted using the form on the CARE Team site. (The CARE Fund is not affiliated with the federal CARES Act.) For more information, please visit Bristolcc.edu/careteam.
