Mission Statement

COVID-19 UPDATE: The Action Care Team continues to meet during this time to review incoming ACT reports.

The Action Care Team (ACT) is a multi-disciplinary team of SF State professionals committed to the health, well-being, and the safety of the SF State community. The team receives referrals and information pertaining to students of concern, collects information, and identifies and enacts appropriate strategies for addressing the potentially threatening situations.

The ACT is SF State's response to the emerging higher education best practice of having Behavioral Intervention Teams. One of the primary goals of establishing this team is to focus on engaging the campus in proactive measures and early intervention strategies to get students appropriate support when they display disruptive or concerning behavior.


The purpose of the team is to provide a means for early intervention of at-risk students through collaboration with campus departments, faculty and staff. Students exhibiting behaviors that are of concern in relation to their personal, physical and emotional well-being should be referred to this team of professionals. Provides a clearinghouse for data on students of concern to promote organized, consistent response to a potential incident.
