C.A.R.E. Initiative



At Manchester University, our mission is to respect the infinite worth of all individuals. The Office of C.A.R.E. (Creating a Respectful Environment) Initiative is a resource and support service program designed to aid in the prevention of sexual violence, domestic/dating violence, and stalking through coordinated community response, education, and culturally responsive practices.  C.A.R.E. is different than Title IX because we are solely responsible for prevention education and resources: We are not a part of the Title IX process. We support University goals by:

  • Creating and sustaining a safe and collaborative community
  • Allowing all students, faculty, and staff to learn from each other through shared mutual respect and life experiences
  • Fostering healthy, long-lasting relationships
  • Supporting a culture of excellence that lasts beyond campus experiences

We take pride in all of our campus and community members invested in continuing the legacy of peace, mutual respect, and life learning by supporting the Four Cores of CARE: Resources & Support Services, Consent, Mindfulness & Healthy Relationships, & Bystander Intervention. No matter who you are, at Manchester University, we are dedicated in supporting you and cultivating a community that will empower your journey towards success. #CAREonMU
