Consent Advocacy & Relationship Education Tutors make education programming and outreach events on gender, sexuality, and violence prevention available to their house communities. They are eager to tailor outreach events to students’ needs & interests and are therefore always happy to hear their ideas about house specific programming. CARE Tutors are also a resource for students who have, at any point in their lives, experienced interpersonal violence. They are knowledgeable about campus resources, the University-wide Title IX policy and are committed to assuring students’ access to support services on or off campus. Every house has a Lead CARE Tutor and one or more Support CARE Tutors. Lead CARE Tutors receive regular supervision and training by the Office of Sexual Assault Prevention & Response.
The CARE adviser program is a partner of the Office of Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (OSAPR) in endeavors to increase student awareness of the issues of sexual assault and harassment, and to promote positive and healthy relationship norms within the College. CARE advisers are a part of a CARE team within their house (the SASH advisers along with members of the OSAPR Student Alliance). Together with the OSAPR, CARE teams work to increase awareness and education opportunities within the residential system. We organize events that promote healthy and safe sexuality, encourage students to join the OSAPR Student Alliance and nominate men throughout the year to become Harvard Men Against Rape peer educators.
This year's CARE tutors are Tory Tobolsky, and Cresa Pugh. We are also proud to count many CARE student allies at Cabot. We are allied with BGLTQ and Race Relations because of shared efforts in promoting everyone's right to be treated with respect, equality, and dignity.
If you would like to speak to a counselor at Harvard about sexual harassment or assault, the CARE group is available to talk. Their 24/7 hotline is 617-495-9100.
