Center for Awareness, Resources, and Education (CARE)
Located inside the Campus Center, CARE is a free and confidential resource for all students impacted by sexual misconduct. At CARE, we have conversations with students about their social and sexual lives, including topics such as sexual health, safe sex, hookups, relationships, and sexual misconduct (harassment, assault, stalking, or relationship abuse). All services are free and available to students with any identity or immigration status. Currently, CARE services are offered only in English.
Students come to CARE to talk about...
- Their sexual/reproductive health
- How to ask for consent
- An assault they experienced
- Wanting to have sex for the first time
- Setting or respecting personal boundaries
- A partner using their gender identity/sexuality/immigration status against them
- Supporting a friend or partner who has experienced sexual violence
- An Office of Equal Opportunity adjudication process (complainant or respondent)
- How to incorporate sex toys into their personal or partnered sex life
- Whether something that happened to them was sexual violence
- Navigating online dating and/or hookup culture
- Someone who is making them uncomfortable/scared or won't leave them alone
- Having potentially harmed a sexual/romantic partner
You will also see CARE staff, Sex Health Reps, and Green Dot students around campus leading trainings for student organizations/teams, tabling with sex health supplies, and hosting campus-wide events.
