We encourage you all to reach out to all the amazing resources that exist for you, both on campus and in the Boston area.
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 seek measures of institutional support from CARE without being identified to the Office of Equal Opportunity (OEO) unless you give us permission to do so. With your consent, we can help with:
Housing changes (if you no longer feel safe in your space)
