About CARE

Our Vision

We envision a campus where all students, faculty and staff treat one another with respect and integrity, where free, open and respectful exchange of ideas can take place, and where the campus community is free from violence.

We value and respect all genders, gender expressions, racial and ethnic identities, bodies, and sexual orientations. We celebrate the richness of our differences while working collectively to create a campus environment that is safe, equitable, and just.

Our Mission

CARE Staff 2015The 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 advocacy and support.

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.
