Welcome to the Center on Domestic Violence
Founded in 2000, the Center on Domestic Violence is an academic, research and service center based at the University of Colorado Denver.
Three primary goals define the work of the center:
- Develop skilled and informed leaders for the movement to end domestic violence through educational programs.
- Inform and empower domestic violence service providers, advocates, and policymakers through original research.
- Serve the community through direct services, training and advocacy.
These combined efforts are reflected in the center’s mission: to end domestic violence by fostering institutional and social change through leadership development, education, research, and community collaboration.
