OVA PROGRAMS

Buffs Supporting Buffs 

  • The Office of Victim Assistance offers training for students, staff and faculty to help respond to someone who has suffered a traumatic incident. This session provides tips on how to respond to someone after a traumatic or life disrupting event including, but not limited to, sexual assault, intimate partner abuse, stalking, discrimination, and bias related incidents. When a trauma survivor is supported, it can help with healing and recovery, as well as increase the likelihood that someone will seek out other professional support.

 

All of us have the responsibility to stop sexual assault. The White House released the “It’s On Us” video campaign, denouncing sexual violence and encouraging bystanders to be more effective in prevention efforts. At CU Boulder, we support this campaign, and agree that it’s on all of us to recognize that we all can be a part of the solution. Please watch this 1-minute video, and listen to your fellow students, faculty, staff and administrators talk about the importance of ending sexual assault. We ask that you continue this discussion with your friends and colleagues, and take individual action to prevent sexual assault and create a safe environment for everyone on and off campus.
