Emergency Guide - Faculty and Staff Red Folder

The Faculty and Staff Red Folder  was created in an effort to consolidate emergency/support information for use when working with distressed students. 

The purpose of the Red Folder is to help you to recognize some of the signs of students in distress, be supportive of their needs and facilitate referrals to the appropriate resources on campus, as well as increasing your awareness of the Student Outreach & Support online Referral System.  

How to use the Red Folder

When a student in distress has been identified, the Quick Referral Guide provides a simplified overview of the University of Denver student support offices. The Stoplight System gives detailed support information and indicates whether an issue is beyond a faculty or staff member's ability to provide support. This Red Folder also provides important information about The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the reporting requirements for Title IX and information on sexual assault resources.   

2017 Updates to the Red Folder

  • Outreach that was made by the CARE Team is now being done by a dedicated full-time staff member.
  • The phone number for Title IX Coordinator has changed to 303-871-7481.
  • Under the Quick Action Guide chart – Campus Safety should be listed as one of the first offices contacted for victims or witnesses of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence or stalking.
  • The Center for Advocacy, Prevention, and Empowerment (CAPE) advocates can be reached by calling the Emergency and Crisis Number 303-871-3000 and requesting the CAPE advocate on call.
