Gender Violence Prevention and Education

Gender Violence Prevention and Education (GVPE) is a specific initiative under the Health and Counseling Center umbrella. GVPE is staffed by a professional staff Coordinator, a graduate fellow, and undergraduate peer educators. GVPE provides the community with BOSS bystander intervention training, community education, and prevention outreach on topics including sexual assault, dating and relationship abuse, sexual harassment and stalking.

Formerly a part of CAPE, GVPE is now a part of the Health Promotion team. If you would like more information about GVPE efforts at DU, please contact Andrea Thyrring at or 303.871.7442. Request a BOSS training or other program here.
