Process Update from Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs

We are writing to share important updates about two processes related to academic affairs. As stated in its Non-Discrimination Statement here, the University of Denver prohibits discrimination based on protected characteristics, including discrimination against students with disabilities. Students with disabilities who seek accommodations to fully access the Academic Exceptions Process and/or the Academic Grievances & Appeals Process should promptly contact AccessibleDU: Student Disability Services (SDS) here. For more information, please visit DU Academic Affairs Policies & Procedures here  to review the updated version of the Academic Exceptions Process here and Academic Grievances & Appeals Process here 

Fall is in the Air!

We love this time of year! In addition to Halloween, we invite you to learn about some of the many celebrations and festivals happening around the world and on campus this time of year! Read up on these observances via links bellows, and check CrimsonConnect for upcoming events…

Celebrate Wisely

As members of a diverse community, all DU community members are expected to uphold the values of integrity, respect, and responsibility. The University encourages everyone to:

  • Be thoughtful when choosing costumes, decorations, and party themes. Easy and “funny” aren’t the only criteria for a good time.
  • Be informed. Making light of historical or current events can undermine our sense of community. Furthering misinformation about incidents or people suggests ignorance or indifference to others’ lived experience. Beyond impact on others, consider yourself as well: "Would I want my friends, family, and/or a potential employer to see my costume on social media?"
  • Showcase your creativity by avoiding representations that reduce cultures or peoples to jokes, caricatures or stereotypes.

Learn more through the We’re A Culture, Not A Costume campaign.

 

Celebrate Safer

  • Be respectful. Remember the phrase, "The way they dress does not mean yes.” Someone’s costume does not indicate their consent.

    • Consent is affirmative, meaning you will want to ask directly and wait until you receive a clear and uncoerced 'yes' before engaging in any sexual activity. Since consent is also ongoing, you will want to check in with your partner throughout. This is especially important since consent can be revoked at any time.
    • Also, don't forget that someone cannot consent to sex if they are impaired by alcohol or other drugs. It is always best to wait if your partner may be under the influence.
  • It is never the fault of the survivor/victim if someone experiences harm, no matter what they are wearing, drinking, or where they are or who they are with. Know that there are resources and supports available on campus if you or someone you know has experienced interpersonal violence. Contact CAPE at cape@du.edu or www.du.edu/cape
  • Plan ahead. Set a drink limit beforehand, and make sure you have a safe way home.
  • Party together. Stay with the same group of friends the whole time.
  • Eat (more than sweets) and stay hydrated before and while drinking.
  • Don’t mix alcohol and other drugs, as combinations can be dangerous.
    • Don’t mix alcohol and other drugs, as combinations can be dangerous." I would add "If planning on using substances, make sure to use caution, and always test powder, pills, and liquid substances for fentanyl before using.
    • If you need fentanyl testing strips or safer sex supplies, visit Thrive Health Promotion's table in the first floor of Community Commons on Thursday, Oct 26th (1-4pm) to pick up free harm reduction supplies and learn more about having a safer Halloween.
  • It’s cold/flu+ season. Don’t share food/drinks, wash your hands regularly, and cough into your elbow/tissue.
  • Consider DU's Mask Policy: For safety, persons may not wear coverings that conceal their face on University premises. Read the policy here, and try something more creative with your costume!

While enjoying the season’s festivities, remember, at DU we look out for each other. That means being aware of our situation, interrupting harmful jokes, attitudes, and actions before they escalate, and calling for help when needed.
