Director, Center for Awareness, Resources and Education
Alexandra Donovan is the Director of the CARE office. Alexandra’s role is to work with students, faculty and staff on prevention, training and awareness activities on the Medford/Somerville, Boston and Grafton campuses. Her goal is to promote healthy communication and relationship skills as well as healthy sexuality. Working with a diverse group of students, Alexandra has launched a campus-wide bystander intervention program focusing on tasks we all can do to reduce sexual violence. Alexandra also has policy-based confidentiality which means she is also able to speak confidentially with students surrounding experiences of sexual misconduct.
Resource and Prevention Specialist has policy-based confidentiality in supporting students affected by sexual misconduct on the Medford/Somerville, Boston and Grafton campuses. This level of confidentiality means that students who have concerns related to issues of sexual assault or misconduct can seek measures of institutional support without necessarily having their name or any identifying characteristics shared with the Office of Equal Opportunity unless the student gives permission to do so. They provides support and information for all Tufts students seeking to understand their options and resources within and beyond the Tufts campuses. They are also responsible for coordinating interim measures such as housing and academic measures to support students who have been affected by sexual misconduct.
