Creating a Rape-free Environment for Students



C.A.R.E.S. is a group of students who are committed to raising awareness regarding rape and sexual assault. The mission includes disseminating prevention information and stimulating discussion with the aim of impacting the rape mentality that pervades our culture. The formal C.A.R.E.S. rape prevention program, the Clothesline Project, Men of Integrity / Women of Action and Take Back the Night are some of the programs that are utilized to educate and raise awareness regarding sexual assault. C.A.R.E.S. members have committed themselves to confronting the very serious and sensitive topic of rape and sexual assault prevention education.
