CARE’s mission is to provide free, confidential, culturally-supportive, and trauma-informed support to all Tufts students impacted by sexual misconduct/harm and to create a culture of respect, consent, and community accountability.
We believe interpersonal violence is rooted in systems of oppression and harm disproportionately impacts marginalized communities. We aim to support Tufts students of all identities, backgrounds, nationalities, citizenships, races, ethnicities, abilities, socioeconomic statuses, religions, genders, bodies, and sexual orientations.
We have conversations with students* about sexual health, hook ups, and relationships, and offer support around sexual harassment, sexual assault, stalking, and relationship violence. At CARE, we will support and advocate for you no matter how you define the harm that occurred. You can make a confidential appointment below. Speaking with us does not trigger a report to the University.
*no matter how you identify or have been impacted: person harmed/victim/survivor/complainant, friend/witness/teammate/roommate, alleged perpetrator/respondent
We are medical staff dedicated to answering your sex health questions. Ask us anything! This is not a clinical or physical exam but rather a conversation about any questions or concerns you might have, such as questions about: changes in libido, orgasms, having sex with a partner who has an STI, being scared to have sex, menstruation and how your body works, if your bodily functions are "normal," how medications can impact your sex life, "should's" you feel around sexual activity, options if you're pregnant, etc.
