Dear CU Denver campus community,
In the wake of the recent incident at Ohio State University, I want to reiterate that the safety of our students, faculty and staff is our foremost priority. At times like this, it can seem that campuses -- and any public location -- are locations where violence can occur. These types of incidents may impact individuals differently and I want to make sure that you are aware of the resources available, from becoming more prepared and educated to behavioral health support.
Reporting unusual behavior
We all play an important role in keeping each other safe. We encourage the “if you see something, say something” approach. Here are some contacts and resources for reporting unusual or concerning behavior:
There are a number of ways to be prepared in the unlikely event of a threat on campus.
Students impacted by these events can access the CU Denver Student and Community Counseling Center. Faculty and staff can seek support through the State Employee Assistance Program.
While it is an unfortunate fact that absolute safety can never be guaranteed, working together we can fulfill our shared responsibility to make our campuses and surrounding areas safer places to study, work and live.
