If you have a resource that you would like to share, please email your Equity Chair Arberesha.Neziri@du.edu with the resource and why it is important for our students.
Resources for Our Students
Your Basic Needs: If you are struggling to meet your basic needs, or you know someone in our program who is, please use the DU Student Outreach and Support Page. This link takes you to resources for food, housing, and healthcare through DU and the surrounding community.
SOS Report: If you know that a student is struggling with mental or physical health, please submit a Student Outreach and Support (SOS) referral. A case manager will simply reach out and provide the student with resources to help meet their needs. You can self-refer.

These will be formalized soon and sent out in a schedule with zoom links.
Responding to Trauma in the Classroom: This is an article written by Valentina Iturbe-LaGrave, Ph.D., Director for Inclusive Teaching Practices at the University of Denver with different research-based solutions that discuss navigating trauma in the higher education classroom. It is a resource for faculty, but is a good resource for everyone to train teachers as well as hold our program to an Inclusive Excellence Standard.
