Campus Assault Resources & Education (CARE)
Campus Assault Resources & Education (CARE) serves as USD's primary effort to provide support, resources and education to the campus community pertaining to sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking. The Women's Center coordinates the CARE Advocate program.
An Advocate can help answer questions about the multiple processes involved in reporting, facilitate appropriate referrals to resources for USD students who have been impacted by sexual assault, harassment, and/or partner violence and are available to accompany students to Public Safety, and/or an interview with Law Enforcement.
Call 619-260-2222 (24 hours, 7 days a week) to receive immediate assistance. Upon calling, request to speak to a CARE Advocate. Advocates can also be contacted directly for assistance. Contact information can be found on the CARE website.
