’Canes Care for ’Canes - What Would You Do for a Fellow ’Cane?
’Canes Care for ’Canes is a campus-wide action-oriented initiative that promotes the ideal of a caring and responsible community where students respect and support one another, especially if one is encountering difficulties or challenges and needs assistance.
Sponsored by the Division of the Student Affairs, the intent of the initiative is to proactively:
1. Promote a caring community among students, faculty, and staff through active and passive programming and outreach;
2. Engage students and encourage them to be active participants, not bystanders, in the lives of their classmates and friends (e.g., paying attention to and speaking up on behalf of students who need assistance);
3. Provide a listing of campus-based and community resources that are available to assist and support students in their academic and interpersonal lives; and,
4. Reach out to students, self-identified or identified by others, and provide the appropriate referrals and resources to address concerns.

’Canes Care for ’Canes is an initiative that furthers the commitment to supporting students in their academic and personal lives. This website provides resources for individuals, within the University of Miami community, who may encounter a student that needs assistance. Through this site, you may access a listing of university departments that respond to students, resource guides, campus programming opportunities and event calendar, informative multimedia, online community forum and the anonymous reporting form. The reporting form allows for members of the community to report a concern about a fellow ’Cane which will result in follow-up with the identified student by a representative of the Division of Student Affairs.
