Advocacy Services

Confidential victim advocacy services are available to all UC San Diego members, including undergraduates, graduate and professional students, staff, faculty, and academic appointees.

UC San Diego’s CARE advocates are available for confidential help in sorting through emotions, resources, and options. As UC San Diego’s certified sexual assault/domestic violence survivor Advocates, CARE Advocates operate within an empowerment model of support, aiming to provide those impacted by sexual assault, relationship violence, and/or stalking with on- and off-campus resources, and supporting whichever path the survivor feels will be most helpful on their healing journey.

CARE Advocates are here to listen, support, and empower survivors with the following services:
