Center for Advocacy, Response and Education available for presentations

Submitted by Center for Advocacy, Response and Education

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and the Center for Advocacy, Response and Education, or CARE, is working hard to create virtual training opportunities throughout October. CARE plans to educate the Wildcat community on the realities that college students experience with interpersonal violence, debunking myths and misconceptions associated with interpersonal violence, ways to support survivors and campus resources.

CARE is encouraging the Wildcat community to get involved throughout October to help make campus a safer, more equitable and accessible environment. One opportunity to get involved is inviting CARE into virtual classrooms to lead a 50-minute presentation on the topics listed above. CARE is also offering prerecorded presentations that can be shared on Canvas pages for students to view at their leisure. If you are interested in inviting CARE into your virtual classroom or want to find out more information, email CARE's prevention specialist Jessica Henault at jhenault@k-state.edu

CARE provides free, voluntary and confidential resources to any K-State student, staff, faculty, or administrator who experience(d) sexual, dating, or domestic violence, stalking and harassment. Survivor advocates are available to meet with clients from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday. CARE is offering virtual appointments or walk-in appointments if a person is in crisis. CARE is in 206 Holton Hall and can be reached at 785-532-6444 or ksucare@k-state.edu
