About Us

photo1.jpgCampus Awareness for Relationship Education (CARE) is a peer education group consisting of female and male ally students focused on raising awareness in order to prevent dating violence, sexual assault, stalking and harassment on the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh campus.

Peer educators provide programs about healthy relationships, consent, sexual rights and how to be a male ally. In addition to serving as a campus resource on the topic of relationship violence, CARE offers presentations that are available to all University student groups, classes and community organizations. CARE oversees Umatter's facet, Consent Matters.


The Purpose of CARE

  • Promote awareness of relationship and sexual rights
  • Educate students about the Victim Advocate's services
  • Provide information about campus resources



The CARE program was initiated in 1989, after date rape had been a concern at UW Oshkosh for years. Students, faculty and staff made a commitment to organize in order to address this issue on campus. CARE was formed as a result of this commitment with the coordination from the Dean of Students Office, Oshkosh Student Association, Women's Center, University Police and Residence Life.


Who Leads CARE

Both CARE Student Director, Student Associate Director and Professional Advisor Leslie Wartgow, LPC are involved in training and supervising the interns and volunteers. The Counseling Center has a long-standing commitment to providing caring and confidential services to students who are dealing with painful emotional experiences, including sexual assault.
