Our Mission:

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.

How We Fulfill Our Mission:

Confidential Support

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

Prevention Programming

Through our Green Dot and Sex Health Reps peer education programs, we aim to prevent sexual misconduct and create a culture of respect on campus, focusing on skill-building around bystander intervention, consent, and sexual health. Find these groups on Instagram @TuftsGreenDot and @TuftsSHR.


As a complement to our prevention programming, we provide consultative services for students looking to (re)establish behavioral expectations for their teams, organizations, and clubs in order to promote safe, respectful, and inclusive environments.

Connecting You to Resources
