What is CARE?
Campus, Advocacy, Resources, and Education (CARE) is UC Santa Barbara’s confidential advocacy and education office for interpersonal violence (sexual violence, relationship violence, and stalking). We offer free and confidential services for students, staff, faculty, alumni, community members, and friends/loved ones impacted interpersonal and gender-based violence and we provide violence prevention education for the entire UCSB campus
Our advocates work alongside survivors to create a compassionate plan of action that honors experiences and choices. An appointment with CARE can serve as a safe space to learn about your rights and explore your options.
We offer alternative forms of healing for survivors including yoga, journaling, boundary and movement workshops, and art. These healing programs are led by trauma informed-specialists and are open to all identities.
We offer a wide range of educational and outreach programs for student organizations and Greek life as well as training for training for professional staff, student staff, and faculty. These programs are designed to build a community that believes in the culture of consent and combating sexual violence at UCSB.
