CARE (Campus Advocacy, Resources & Education) is an intervention and prevention support program committed to ending sexual violence at UC Riverside. We seek to unite, inspire and cultivate a community culture of care by providing direct advocacy, resources and prevention educational programming related to issues of sexual assault, relationship violence and stalking to students, staff, faculty and UCR affiliates.
Our Story and Vision
In 2015, UC Riverside established the CARE office with the arrival of Naddia Palacios, founding CARE director and advocate. The CARE office and its mission emerged out of the ideas, conversations and recommendations that over 100 UC students, faculty, staff, survivors and advocates developed during the 2014 University of California President’s Task Force on Prevention and Responding to Sexual Violence and Assault. CARE was developed to provide the UCR community with an office of advocacy and support, a safe and supportive environment for survivors, and creating social change through training and educational resources related to violence prevention. The CARE office at UCR is fully committed to supporting this vision and continues to push forth. We invite you to be a part of this mission.
