Center for Awareness, Resilience and Education (CARE)

About Us

The mission of the CARE office is to intentionally plan, implement, and promote educational activities which encourage the health and well-being of Baldwin Wallace students. Further, CARE intends to provide these resources as a means to create a proactive environment where Baldwin Wallace students can learn how to equip themselves and their peers with the necessary tools that will empower them to take responsibility for their personal and professional growth, development, and well-being.​

CARE Organizations

To ensure student outreach and education, the CARE office houses three student organizations who are dedicated to advocating and promoting student health/wellness through peer education and alternative event programming: The Health Promotion Grant Board, BWise and Active Minds. Please go to our Organizations page for more information.

CARE Organizations

BW Informed Student Educators (BWise)

Our goal is to educate the Baldwin Wallace University community on responsible choices related to sex, drugs, alcohol, and other wellness issues. BWise is a member of the BACCHUS and GAMMA Peer Education Network and provides training to BW students interested in becoming certified in peer education. Certification as a Peer Educator develops leadership and team building skills along with empowering students to take an active role in creating and implementing campus programming. BWise provides educational and social events throughout the year.​​

​Health Promotions Grant Board (HPGB)

A Student-Faculty Administration committee on wellness established the Health Promotion Fund in 1994. The fines levied against students who violate the College alcohol policy finance the fund. HPGB funds or partially funds programming that promotes wellness and reflects Baldwin Wallace University policies. HPGB promotes alternative events and activities that discourages the use of alcohol, tobacco and illegal drugs and addresses issues related to sexual and mental health, fitness, nutrition, and safety.

Active Minds

We strive to increase students' awareness of mental health issues and symptoms of mental illness, to serve as a liaison between students and mental health organizations in surrounding communities, and to provide educational resources and training to students. The group aims to reduce stigma that surrounds mental illness and create and open environment for discussion of mental health issues.
