Dare to CARE is Champlain College's culture of wellbeing, focused on four major themes: Connect, Act, Respect, and Empower.
Your personal and academic success at Champlain College tie directly to your wellbeing. Thriving both personally and professionally in a college environment is achievable through focus, self-awareness, and engagement.
What is Dare to CARE?
Champlain's Dare to CARE campaign was created by students, staff, and faculty working in partnership to create a culture of wellbeing. Through educational programs, events, and communication campaigns, Dare to CARE challenges you to access support for yourself and others, take safe and effective action when you see a potential problem, maintain healthy relationships with yourself and others, and gain knowledge through education and training.

We know navigating college academics, friendships, relationships, internships, and more can be challenging. Life can be a lot to juggle sometimes, and we want to provide the educational opportunities needed so you are aware of the wellbeing resources available on campus and in the community. Adding a few wellbeing tips and tricks to our tool belts can help us center ourselves among competing priorities.
Having a good understanding of your own wellbeing is crucial as you navigate new transitions, experiences, and challenges in your life as a college student.
