The Center for Awareness, Resilience and Education (CARE) plans, implements and promotes educational activities to encourage the health and well-being of students. The CARE office is a student-driven resource at Baldwin Wallace that has a primary focus on reducing danger and high-risk behavior associated with alcohol, promoting student wellness and preventing power-based personal violence.

All CARE organizations support 0-1-3 for responsible drinking:

0 = ZERO drinks if under 21, driving, chemically dependent, on medication or pregnant.
1 = ONE drink (12 oz. beer, 4 oz. glass of wine or 1.5 oz. shot of liquor) per hour if male and over 21; for women, ONE drink every 1.5 hours if over 21 due to differences in alcohol absorption rates.
3 = No more than THREE drinks per day and/or drink no more than THREE times a week that you drink.
