“Weaving the Fabric of a Non-Violent University"


601 S. College RoadSecond Floor, Westside HallWilmington, NC 28403-5939910-962-CARE



  • The UNCW Collaboration for Assault Response and Education is the campus initiative dedicated to intervening on a broad spectrum of violent behaviors, including sexual assault, relationship abuse, stalking and harassment.


  • CARE was created by the Division of Student Affairs August, 2005 and was staffed by Dee Casey and Rebecca Caldwell throughout that academic year. 

  • In July 2005, Dee Casey was hired full-time as Assistant Director for Violence Prevention, while Rebecca added Violence Prevention to her directorship of Substance Abuse Prevention services.  Before the office was created, issues of violence prevention were addressed primarily in the Office of the Dean of Students, and were supported by programming efforts in the Counseling Center, Crossroads, Residence Life, University Police and the Women’s Resource Center


  • The university was very open to the creation of CARE as a response to the concern developed after the murders in 2004 of 2 UNCW students. 

  • Relationship violence in the form of acquaintance stalking and relationship abuse (verbal/emotional) were precipitants of the murders, although neither murderer had ever been physically or sexual violent with the victims before murdering them.
