Student Outreach & Support

Our Mission

Student Outreach & Support (SOS) helps students succeed by connecting them to resources. We develop action plans to meet student goals and help navigate challenging situations. The SOS staff creates an inclusive and welcoming environment for students. We develop skills in self-awareness, self-advocacy, resilience, and navigation to maximize educational experiences.

If you or a student you know is in need of support, submit an SOS referral. Staff members outreach students within 1-2 business days and share information about SOS.

SOS Is Not for Emergencies

Dial 9-1-1 in Case of Emergency

For emergencies, immediately dial 9-1-1 and then Campus Safety at 303-871-3000. If dialing from a campus phone, press 1-3000 for Campus Safety.

Emergencies include any immediate risk to life, health or property.

Support Resources

For Students

When you submit an SOS Referral, whether it's for you or someone you know, you make our community stronger. We provide resource information about basic needs, medical leave, grief support, and more.

Types of Student Support

For Faculty & Staff

If you're a faculty or staff member who knows of a student who may need support, please contact us as soon as possible. We at Student Outreach & Support also want to help you navigate the Referral Flow Chart.
