While there are numerous resources on CU’s campus that are designed to assist and support students who experience harassment, discrimination, and assault, there is a fundamental gap between those resources and the student bodies they serve. The independent, student-run Geology Social Misconduct Awareness and Response Team (GeoSMART) provides an essential bridge that will assist in guiding students through the process of best utilizing these existing resources on campus.

Review Your Experience With Campus Resources to GeoSMART
These are knowledgeable and approachable allies from whom graduate students who are managing issues of harassment or assault can seek support and knowledge on what resources are available. The GeoSMART Graduate Representative positions are not intended to provide legal guidance, formal counsel, or to act as a mediator in difficult situations. Graduate Representatives are intended to be a helpful starting place from which students can seek assistance through other on-campus offices.
