SARC logo CARE: Center for Advocacy, Resources, and Education (formerly SARC)

The Center for Advocacy, Resources, and Education (CARE) is the UCSD advocacy office for sexual violence, gender-based violence (dating violence, domestic violence, stalking), and sexual misconduct.

CARE envisions a world free of violence. To that end, through policy development and campus-wide collaborations, we are committed to providing education and support services that empower students, faculty, and staff. CARE is dedicated to creating a safe and respectful community that does not tolerate sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking.

CARE offers workshops on violence prevention for the entire UCSD campus and provides free and confidential services for students, staff, and faculty impacted by violence, with a focus on survivors of sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking.

Due to the call to action by UC President Janet Napolitano to have a system-wide consistent model for the prevention and response to sexual violence, SARC has changed its name to CARE. See Chancellor Khosla’s announcement for details.
