The Center for Advocacy, Response and Education (CARE) provides confidential, free, and voluntary services and advocacy for survivors of sexual violence, dating violence, stalking, and sexual harassment. Founded in 1973 as the Women's Center, CARE provides quality direct services to students, staff, and faculty impacted by sexual and interpersonal violence.

CARE Survivor Advocates are available to assist survivors in understanding and navigating university policies and procedures and help promote the academic success and personal wellness of survivors. CARE Survivor Advocates are also available to the greater K-State community to provide education, training and facilitated conversations around the aforementioned and related topics. 

The Center for Advocacy, Response, and Education provides assistance for those in our K-State community who have been victimized by violence. We can assist survivors who may need help with law enforcement, legal or medical assistance, mental health, and academic concerns.

Our office (Holton 206) is open to all faculty, staff, and students from 8-5 PM.
