The Phoenix Center at Anschutz (PCA)​ serves the entire campus community, including students, faculty, and staff. We provide free, confidential support services, education, awareness efforts, and resource referrals for issues of interpersonal violence (IPV). IPV is an umbrella term that encompasses relationship violence, sexual violence, and stalking.

The Phoenix Center at Anschutz is a free and confidential resource.​

How can the PCA hel​p you?

If you or someone you know has experienced IPV, the PCA is here to help. As a free and confidential resource, an advocate can explain your options and allow you to make your own decision about what to do next. Here are some of the ways we can help:​

  • Our 24/7 helpline is always available for support (even over breaks), from just talking about what happened to explaining your options and providing referrals.
  • In-office advocates can provide emotional support, discuss options, and safety-plan to keep you safe.
  • We also provide academic advocacy, which can include getting deadlines extended, arranging make up tests, having absences excused, and more. We can work with your professors or supervisors to help you stay successful in school and work.
  • We can accompany you to court, assist you in filing a police report, or go with you to the hospital for a medical forensic exam.
  • We can explain student conduct and Title IX processes and support you if you choose to report what happened to the school.​
  • For more information about the Phoenix Center, see our main website.
