About CARE

Mission Statement

CARE staff provide resources and direct services that are non-judgmental, survivor-focused and empowering. CARE recognizes that each person’s experience is unique, and staff are available to help each survivor assess their reporting options and access resources that meet personal needs. CARE staff can also provide information and other support services to friends and family of survivors. In addition to direct survivor services, CARE offers campus-wide programming on sexual violence, consent, and bystander intervention, among other topics.
