Campus Advocacy, Resources and Education (CARE)

Campus Advocacy, Resources and Education (CARE) provides support, advocacy, resources, and violence prevention education to the UC Santa Cruz community. We respond to the needs of students, staff, and faculty impacted by sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, and stalking by providing confidential advocacy services. CARE services are survivor-centered and trauma-informed.

To request an appointment with a confidential CARE Advocate, email or call 831-502-CARE (2273).

CARE also works collaboratively with students, faculty, and staff to educate the campus community about the vital role that each of us has in preventing violence and creating a culture of consent and respect. We supervise a peer prevention education program for students covering topics including:

  • How to support survivors
  • Reporting options
  • Healthy communication and relationships
  • Bystander intervention skills
  • Media literacy

CARE is located at Kresge 714, near the Owl's Nest Cafe. Find us online at CARE, or follow us on Facebook by searching "UCSC CARE."
