DO Better: University of Denver

Do Better: DU is a chapter of the national nonprofit Do Better which fights for an end to gender violence on college campuses everywhere. At the University of Denver, collaborate on Love, Sex and Health Week programs, Red Zone Events, and help co-program during Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM - April). As well, we work closely with administration to ensure that the action plan that was set out by Chancellor Haefner in March of 2020 is implemented to ensure the safety of all students on DU's campus. We also work closely with the Undergraduate Student Government (USG) to make sure that policies are aligned in all sectors of campus. We even have a specific designated position within USG to advocate for gender violence! Find them on Crimson Connect. You can also contact their advisor, Andrea Thyrring at andrea.thyrring@du.edu or 303-871-7442.
