About Us

What is CARE?

CARE is a resource center. Located on the second floor of DePaolo Hall, along with the CROSSROADS, Student Health Services, and the Counseling Center.

CARE is about options. Any student affected by issues of violence and harassment has a variety of options and services available on and off campus. CARE staff will identify and discuss those options with students.

CARE is for survivors. Recovering from sexual assault or relationship violence is a process. Survivors may look for services soon after an event or up to years later.

CARE is for those affected by violence. When someone we love is the victim of a sexual assault or is involved in an abusive relationship, we can feel sad, angry, and helpless. CARE provides information, resources and a place to talk.

CARE engages the campus. Through trainings, programs, and awareness campaigns, the professional staff and peer educators of CARE join our partners across campus in education to raise awareness and change the campus environment.

CARE is a collaboration. Our campus partners include University Police, the Office of the Dean of Students, Counseling Center, Health Services, the Women’s Resource Center, the LBGTQIA Resource Center and Housing and Residential Life. We work collaboratively with the Rape Crisis Center and Domestic Violence Shelter and Services.

Our Mission

UNCW CARE intervenes on a broad spectrum of violent behaviors, including sexual assault, relationship abuse, stalking and harassment. We offer a comprehensive variety of violence prevention and relationship education programs, trainings, and educational campaigns to the UNCW campus. We respond to students who have been victimized, as well as those affected by someone else’s experience with abuse or assault, by providing supportive services, including crisis response, individual advocacy and coordination with both on-campus and off-campus resources.

The goals of CARE are:
