The Pulse: Weekly News & Happenings at DU
Black History Month

Heritage, Awareness and Inclusion: Black History Month

Black History Month is a dedicated time to recognize the contributions of Black peoples to the world. But it is also a time to reflect on the historical and contemporary injustices perpetrated against an entire race and imagine a world that should be different. Black and African American communities continue to struggle in the grips of unjust criminal justice and education systems that continue to diminish the lives and opportunities of their people. These are systems that require reimagining and rebuilding, and we all share in that work. As an institution dedicated to serving the public good, DU recognizes that our pathway to excellence in science, arts, business, government and human services has depended, and will continue to depend, on the contributions of our Black and African American peers.

Interested in participating in DU research? 

Engineering and Computer Science Building Room 570

The Linseman Lab at the University of Denver’s Knoebel Institute for Healthy Aging would like to invite you to participate in a research study about the long-term brain health effects of COVID-19 and brain trauma. This study will significantly contribute to our current understanding of COVID-19 and could help doctors and researchers improve treatment for patients with long-term symptoms, especially those with a history of brain injury. We are seeking participants with and without history of COVID-19 and/or traumatic brain injury. Your participation would involve a brief consenting session and a yearly study visit during which you would complete an online questionnaire (60-90 min), a cognitive assessment (20-45 min), and a blood draw at the University of Denver (15 min).

If you are interested in participating in this study, please fill out the prescreening survey at the link here:

Help us catch the Phish

We Need Your Help to Catch the Phish!

You might be familiar with the term phishing, the fraudulent practice of sending email messages pretending to be from reputable sources and often tricking individuals into revealing personal information, such as passwords or credit card numbers. Unfortunately, once scammers have your passwords or other personal information, these security breaches can cause significant financial costs to you and the entire organization.

Over the next few weeks, with the help of some very special phish and our partners in the Division of Marketing & Communications, we will run a game to help you learn how to avoid these dangerous phish by catching and reporting them so they can be eliminated. You’ll learn real-world cybersecurity protection skills and have a chance to win prizes. Let’s start the game by testing your knowledge of basic cybersecurity and phishing. Please take this quick, six-question online quiz. The quiz should take you less than four minutes to complete and is important for us to get a baseline on your basic knowledge. Those who take the quiz will receive hints before the start of the first challenge! You can keep up with the campus phish sightings on all of DU’s social media channels: LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

Thank you, DU community! With your help and participation, together we will have the knowledge to combat our phishing invasion. If you have any questions about our upcoming Catch the Phish campaign, please email Happy phishing!
