Intervene Peer Educators

The Intervene Peer Educators are a select group of student leaders who educate the DU campus community on gender violence prevention and bystander intervention through outreach, education, and training. Intervene Peer Educators also serve as liaisons between DU students and the Health and Counseling Center. Intervene Peer Educators receive over 40 hours of professional development training in gender violence topics, trauma response, inclusive excellence practice, and effective facilitation. Applications for membership are available each Winter. For more information, please contact the Coordinator of Gender Violence Prevention and Education, Andrea Thyrring, at [email protected] or 303-871-7442.

Collegiate Council for Gender Violence Topics

In an effort to unify gender violence prevention and education student efforts, a number of student organizations came together in the Fall of 2017 to streamline and empower their program and event development processes. Formerly known as the Student Coalition for the Eradication of Sexual Assault (SCESA), this group grew to support student initiatives including the Red Tape Project and Into the Light, among others. If you are interested in joining the Council or pursuing other educational initiatives at DU to prevent gender violence and educate community members, please email [email protected]. You can also email their advisor, Andrea Thyrring, at [email protected] or 303-871-7442.
