What is medical amnesty?
When, out of a concern for health and safety, a Student chooses to take intentional action and seek assistance from a University Official or emergency services for themselves or others, SRR will not initiate a formal conduct process for alcohol and/or drug violations if the Medical Amnesty Process applies.

Examples of when to call for help... if someone:
  • is unresponsive or unconscious
  • is cold, clammy, pale, or has blotchy skin
  • has shallow or irregular breathing
  • comits multiple times or vomits while sleeping
  • is unable to answer basic questions or complete basic tasks
  • needs assistance returning to their home
  • is unable to regulate their emotions
  • has sustained an injury

Engagement Opportunities Coming Up

EVENT

Hockey Campout

Friday, October 13 at 6:00pm
to Saturday, October 14 at 8:00am
Ritchie Center Parking Lot, 2240 Buchtel Blvd S, Denver, CO 80210, United States
Link
Add to Google Cal,Outlook,Yahoo,iCal

A night to campout at the Ritchie Center for the chance to get FREE season tickets to the DU Hockey Team!

Registration: Campout Crews, Crew Captains, and Crew Members

A Campout Crew is made up of no more than 6 people, up to 5 Crew Members and 1 Crew Captain.

We ask that you designate a Crew Captain to be your crew's designated representative for communication, check-ins etc.

Note that Crew Captains will need to submit a form at the end of registration  (you will be redirected automatically) to notify us of who is part of your Campout Crew.

The Basics:
Everyone in the same Campout Crew gets to check-in at the same time the day of Hockey Campout, so even if only one person checks-in earlier in the day, the rest of your Crew don't have to be there until later in the day if they have other commitments. An earlier check-in time increases your chances of getting a golden ticket the next day, but your entire Campout Crew will have to campout out all night to be eligible to get one!

Registration Updates:
You are able to update your registration at any time by cancelling your current registration and submitting a new one with the correct selections. Alternatively, if you selected both options, please delete one and keep the other, whichever is most relevant to your role on your Campout Crew.

LGBTQ+ History Month

Throughout October, we celebrate LGBTQ+ History Month, a time to honor and recognize the contributions, struggles, and achievements of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community. This month serves as an opportunity to raise awareness about the history of the LGBTQ+ rights movement and to promote equality and acceptance for all.

Indigenous Peoples' Day

Indigenous Peoples' Day

On October 9, we commemorate Indigenous Peoples' Day, a day dedicated to honoring the rich histories, cultures, and contributions of Indigenous communities across the world. This day provides an alternative perspective to Columbus Day, promoting awareness about the impact of colonization on Indigenous populations and advocating for their rights and recognition.

Disability Employment Awareness Month

Disability Employment Awareness Month

Disability Employment Awareness Month is observed in October to emphasize the importance of creating inclusive workplaces that value the talents and skills of people with disabilities. Throughout the month, initiatives and discussions highlight the need for equal employment opportunities and challenge misconceptions about disabilities in the workforce.

Student Accountability Board (SAB) Recruitment

Do you or does someone you know want to be more engaged in the DU community? Support the DU community and its members? Participant in incident and conflict resolution? Nominate yourself or your friends for the Student Accountability Board (SAB)!

The student members would work as equal partners with staff and faculty members to uphold University policies. SRR is looking for a diverse and deep pool of trained SAB members in order to fully represent our campus community.
To nominate yourself or another student, please complete this survey.
For Fall Quarter Trainings, please complete this form by October 20, 2023. This survey remains open past this deadline for anyone interested. Please send any questions to SRR at SRR@du.edu
