Campus Advocacy Resources & Education

Get Involved

CARE Connect

Want to make a difference for your community, but don’t have a lot of time? Concerned about all the campus alerts, but not sure what you can do? Care Connect is a one-time, two-hour training with staff from campus and community agencies.

The training will cover how to help if someone tells you they have been assaulted, how to recognize signs of an abusive relationship, what resources are available on campus and in the community, and effective actions you can take to make our campus a safer place.

To attend a training or request information, please contact for more information.

Queer Connect

Queer Connect is an educational workshop focused specifically on sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking within LGBTQ communities. The goal of Queer Connect is to address the unique experiences that impact LGBTQ survivors and to provide skills on how to sensitively respond to disclosures and connect to campus resources.

Violence Intervention & Prevention Internship

Violence Intervention and Prevention provides on-campus, education- and project-based internships.

Interns will work for 5-7 hours/week throughout the quarter. The first few weeks will be planned educational activities, while later weeks will be more flexible as interns develop their own project under the guidance and supervision of CARE staff. Internships will take place in the CARE Program office in the Student Resource Building.

This internship will provide you with an opportunity to develop expertise on interpersonal violence (dating violence, sexual assault, stalking) through comprehensive, hands-on training and ongoing education. You will also learn about and evaluate different attempts to raise awareness about and prevent these acts.

The program will also give you a “mini-grant” to put on a program in your community that educates and prevents violence. You will use and develop creative and organizational skills to plan and put on an event, social media campaign or other project that address this topic in your community, under the guidance and support of CARE staff.
