Clark Anti-Violence Education Program

Finding Help On Campus

Our Services

The Clark Anti-Violence Education (CAVE) program was established as part of the university’s commitment towards ending sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking. CAVE is a private and safe starting point for students affected by sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking. You may have personally experienced violence or abuse, or be supporting a friend, co-worker, family member or student.

Scope of services


Educational programs for students incorporate topics that raise awareness about dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking; define and discuss consent; and address options for individual and community action to help prevent and eliminate these violent behaviors.


CAVE staff are available to provide advocacy and information for survivors and their loved ones. The primary aim of our advocacy services is to help survivors understand their options. Some common domains that our staff can help students with are: filing a police report, protection orders, safety planning, complaints under the Student Code of Conduct, housing issues, academic issues, other advocacy issues within the University, and referrals to medical, legal, counseling and other community resources.

Call the CAVE office at 508-421-3724. Meetings are scheduled by appointment Monday through Friday.
