Title IX - Ravens CARE

Countering Assault Risk with Education

  • Ravens CARE consists of dedicated, caring student leaders who uphold human dignity by promoting enrichment programs centering on the virtues of kindness and courage and the charism of Benedictine hospitality and community (with programs such as bystander intervention), as well as sexual assault and dating violence prevention and intervention programs (such as self-defense training).
  • CARE develops and delivers various initiatives for the student body related to Title IX and Campus SaVe federal guidelines. CARE leaders are advised by the Counseling Center and consist of both male and female students.
  • Students interested in assisting CARE with future initiatives should apply by contacted Jennifer Schmidt, Counseling Center Assistant Director, at (913)360-7621 or jschmidt@benedictine.edu. All students are invited to contribute to CARE.

It's On Us: Ravens CARE and the Benedictine College Office of Marketing & Communications have collaborated on “It's on Us”, a video asking the community to take action to prevent dating violence and sexual assault. You can take the pledge at http://itsonus.org/#pledge
