DU Community Campaign: Protect DU

Campaign to create education and awareness about the services available to students

Student Affairs and Inclusive Excellence in partnership with our COVID-19 Coordinator and campus partners will create awareness campaigns and socialize the services currently available to students through organizations such as student governments and during events such as orientation. These services would set expectations for students while prioritizing support.


Student Affairs and Inclusive Excellence with campus partners are reviewing and adapting various policies surrounding student support, conduct, and responsibility and is working on defining guiding behavior policies for accountability using a preventative, educational approach regarding students’ responsibility for their health and the community health. 

Culture and Education Approach through campaigns and social norming:

  1. Community commitment campaign that “Being part of the DU Community means that each of us must take extraordinary steps to stay well and persistently protect each other, on campus and in the community. Accountable together, I commit to take responsibility for my own health, the protection of others, and help keep the DU community safe from the spread of COVID-19 and other infections as identified and instructed by the University.” 
  2. Our guiding principles underscore that “at DU we look out for each other, we respect each other, and we commit to protecting our community together. Today, as the effects of the pandemic impact our friends, our families, and our world, we must work to protect the health and safety of every member of our campus community.” 
Protect DU

As we prepare to return to campus, DU student leaders, staff, and campus partners are developing a community campaign to articulate our shared commitment to protecting ourselves, each other and our community. As we return to campus, we ask each other to commit to protecting our community together.
