We are here to help all Tufts students (on all campuses) who have been impacted by sexual violence regardless of the time or location the experience took place. CARE is confidential, which means if you have concerns related to issues of sexual violence, you can talk to CARE without being identified to the Office of Equal Opportunity (OEO).

With complete confidentiality, we can offer you:

  • Trauma-informed emotional support
  • Transportation to and from a local hospital to get a forensic medical exam ("rape kit")
  • Discussion of your options
  • Safety planning
  • Help with anonymous reporting
  • Information on reporting options
  • Support in writing a complaint or response to a complaint
  • Connecting you to an off-campus mental health provider
  • Safer sex supplies
  • Trauma-informed educational materials
  • Information about other services on campus (e.g. how to get a counselor at CMHS)


With your consent, we can collaborate with campus partners to help with:

  • Academic support/flexibility
  • Housing changes (if you no longer feel safe in your space)
  • No-Contact Orders
  • Access to mental and physical healthcare services on and off campus
