Confidential and Non-Confidential Support Services
UC Davis offers several different resources for victims of sexual violence. If you want to maintain as much control over your situation as possible, we recommend contacting the Center for Advocacy, Resources and Education (CARE) or one of the other campus confidential resources (see below) for advice and support. These offices are not required to report incidents of sexual violence or harassment to the university. There are also many off-campus confidential resources available for community members who wish to seek non-UC Davis services. Offices listed as non-confidential resources may be required to forward information about incidents of sexual violence or sexual harassment to the Harassment & Discrimination Assistance and Prevention Program (HDAPP).
