Resource and Prevention Specialist
The Center for Awareness, Resources and Education (CARE) provides a safe space to access specialists trained in supporting students impacted by sexual misconduct. CARE offers confidential resources, reporting options and interim supports, as well as information about prevention and educational programming.
Stay Away Requests and No Contact Orders
Stay Away Requests may be issued without pursuing formal action to address harassment, stalking, and other unwanted attention.
No Contact Orders are issued to prohibit contact between parties when there is a complaint alleging sexual misconduct.
The Tufts’ Chaplaincy offers confidential pastoral care that is a type of care and counseling provided by religious professionals. It involves non-judgmental and compassionate listening that allows people to share their deepest joys, concerns and hopes in the context of their full humanity, and for many, their spirituality. It can be a way to think through a relationship or a concern and it provides a space for confidential sharing in the context of a holistic network of support.
