DU Student Outreach and Support and Pioneers Care

A note about confidentiality: as a part of this process, we work very hard to maintain confidentiality for students so they trust the work we’re doing. As a result, if you submit a report, we don’t generally report back or communicate with you about the details of how we’ll be working with individual students. A Pioneers CARE report is not for emergencies. If there is an immediate threat to a student (either through self-harm or interpersonal violence) or the community, please call Campus Safety at 303-871-3000, or if dialing from a campus phone, 1-3000.

  • Korbel Asylum Project is looking for researchers.

    o The Korbel Asylum Project partners with local attorneys in the Denver area whose clients are submitting political asylum applications. Through their partnership with the attorney, Asylum project researchers receive the testimony from the client that will be included in their application and use it to guide research on how likely it is that this individual will or will not be persecuted if they were deported. This is a fantastic project because student researchers benefit by being able to apply human rights research to "real life" scenarios, the partner attorneys represent these clients on a pro bono basis and can put more effort to the legal arguments of the case, and the asylum seekers, who are often indigent, do not have to pay for quality human rights reports.It is an especially pertinent issue at the moment, and the project is always looking for new participants to help as a researcher. If anyone is interested, email korbelasylumproject@gmail.com.
