Get Involved!  

There are many ways to get involved in the campaign to end gender violence on our campus. For example you apply to be a BOSS Peer Educator, you can apply for a work study position, you can volunteer for and/or attend our events throughout the year, including events during April's Sexual Assault Awareness Month,  you can "Like" us on Facebook to stay up-to-date on current events, and you can talk with your friends and family when you hear comments that are disrespectful or discriminatory in nature. 

Join a Student Group

BOSS Peer Educators

The BOSS Peer Educators are a select group of student leaders who educate the DU campus community on gender violence issues and bystander intervention. BOSS Peer Educators will be members of a team of six to eight peer educators who provide outreach, education, and training. BOSS Peer Educators also serve as liaisons between DU students and the Health and Counseling Center. Applications for membership are available each spring. For more information, please contact the Coordinator of Gender Violence Prevention and Education, Andy Thyrring, at or 303-871-7442.


Student Coalition for the Eradication of Sexual Assault (SCESA)

For students who are passionate about sexual assault prevention and education issues, there is a student-run committee under the direction of Undergraduate Student Government called the "Student Coalition for the Eradication of Sexual Assault" (SCESA). Students can learn more about getting involved by contacting with questions about the organization and how to get involved.


Graduate Women's Council

Are you a graduate student at DU who is passionate about issues that affect women? The Graduate Women's Council is being re-established to provide graduate students a forum to discuss topics affecting female-identified graduate students as well as other women at DU and in our larger community. As a part of DU's Women's Coalition, we will also be collaborating with other women-focused organizations on campus to plan events throughout the year empowering women and educating the community. Please go to the Graduate Women's Council website for more information.
