About CARE


The CARE office is a confidential space to discuss issues of dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.

Our Vision

UCSC Campus Advocacy, Resources & Education (CARE) believes that all people deserve to live and engage in an environment free from violence. We believe in promoting an environment where people can learn and work while being safe and healthy. We celebrate the differences on this campus and believe in working collectively to create a community that is free from violence, exploitation, and harassment and instead promotes safety and equity.

Our Mission

The CARE program provides support, advocacy, resources and violence prevention education to the UC Santa Cruz community. We respond to the needs of students, staff, faculty and non-affiliates impacted by stalking, dating/domestic violence and sexual assault by providing free and confidential services.

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 social justice locally and globally.
