The K-State Center for Advocacy, Response, and Education works to promote a safe and equitable work and learning environment for all students through advocacy, presentations, academic classes, training, and referral. Since 1973, this office has supported the well being of K-State women by providing advocacy and promoting gender equity.
More recent initiatives involve campus culture change efforts such as nonviolence education, the Empty Bowls Project, and programs for men. Over 200 K-State men and women from all majors comprise W.A.R. (Wildcats Against Rape), a student group dedicated to raising awareness of campus sexual violence.
Our focus has moved upstream from acts of violence. We no longer simply react to crises, but work to change the environment of our community. A community that promotes harmony and compassion will naturally display less violence.
