C-PART and its Functions

What is C-PART?

The C-PART is a multidisciplinary group of professional staff members that meet on a regular basis to provide support and resource to students.  The C-PART receives, assesses, responds to, and monitors behavior that may be disruptive, concerning or threatening.

The purpose of the C-PART is to provide a centralized structure for the campus community to report concerns.  The primary goals are early intervention and effective communication with campus departments, students, faculty, and staff.

Faculty and staff should contact the C-PART regarding students who may be exhibiting behaviors of concern in relation to their personal, physical or emotional well-being or who are behaving in a manner that is intimidating, disruptive, aggressive or violent.

C-PART includes the following representatives:

  • Associate Dean, Student Special Services, Co-Chair
  • Dean, Student Services, Co-Chair
  • Chief, Police and College Safety
  • Counselor
  • Dean, Student Life
  • Director, Student Health Services
  • Lieutenant, Police and College Safety
  • Psychologists, Personal Counseling

When alerted to a concern, the C-PART will:

  • Gather and analyze information.
  • Assess needs of those impacted.
  • Determine and implement plans for the student including immediate and ongoing strategies.
  • Provide and make referrals for advice, support and assistance.
  • Address risks of harm to student and/or others involved.
  • Review interventions and implementation strategies throughout the process.

The C-PART is not appropriate as a first response to emergencies, a referral or a case management service.  If there is an immediate threat or concern for a student’s health or safety, please contact Police and College Safety, (626) 585-7484 or Dial 911.

Please note that if you have access to any district office telephone, you may dial 911, these calls are directly routed to the Police and College Safety dispatch.
