Get Involved

There are many ways you can get involved in gender violence prevention and education here at DU.
 

Do Better: University of Denver

Do Better: DU is a chapter of the national nonprofit Do Better which fights for an end to gender violence on college campuses everywhere. At the University of Denver, we collaborate on Love, Sex and Health Week programs, Red Zone events, and help co-program in April during Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). We also work with DU administration to enhance the safety of all DU students, and collaborate with the Undergraduate Student Government (USG) to make sure that policies are aligned in all sectors of campus. We even have a specific designated position within USG to advocate for gender violence prevention. Find them on Crimson Connect or contact Andrea Thyrring at 303-871-7442 or andrea.thyrring@du.edu.

Annual Programs

Each year, Health Promotion supports programs throughout the fall, winter, and spring quarters to provide the DU community with education on gender violence topics, prevention skills, and survivor support initiatives. You can also request a workshop or outreach at any time for your organization, team, class, or community. Workshops we offer include Support a Survivor, Unpacking Gender Violence, and Trauma-Informed Leadership, or we can create a program tailored specifically to your needs!
