The UC Davis Center for Advocacy, Resources & Education (CARE): Advocacy Office for Sexual and Gender-based Violence and Sexual Misconduct, formerly known as Campus Violence Prevention Program (CVPP), is the on-campus, confidential resource for all students, staff and faculty who have experienced any form of sexual violence, including sexual assault, sexual harassment, domestic/dating violence, and stalking.  We provide 24/7 emergency response, crisis intervention, and support services for survivors.  Additionally, we offer support and guidance to family members, friends, and other concerned persons of the survivor.

Our mission is to reduce sexual violence using a multi-faceted approach, including primary prevention, education and awareness, and trauma-informed survivor services.  We work to broaden public awareness about the nature of sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, stalking, and its impact on people of all genders, reinforce the necessity of healthy communication - including healthy sexual communication and consent, and to mitigate the trauma of the victim/survivor. 

In addition to providing confidential survivor advocacy services, CARE staff also develop and facilitate educational programming and training for professionals working with survivors of sexual violence.  For more information about CARE services go HERE.

If you would like to speak confidentially with an advocate, schedule an educational program or professional training, or just find out more about the program, please contact us at 752-3299 or email us at
