If a member of the University community observes any behavior that is concerning and that needs to be brought to the attention of the TAMUG CARE Team, individuals may report the behavior using the online form or by contacting one of the CARE Team members during business hours. 

This is not a system to be used for emergencies.  If you are in an emergency situation that requires medical, psychological or police services, call 9-911 from a campus phone.  Off-campus and cell phones, call 911.
