We are here to support you. This has been a tough year for many of us, and our campus community has been through a lot in a short amount of time.
The Office of Victim Assistance (OVA) stands in solidarity with the Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities. We also stand with those who have been impacted by the act of violence at the Table Mesa King Soopers in Boulder.
In light of recent events in our community, Atlanta and all that has happened over the past year, we understand the harmful and traumatic impacts many have experienced in our communities. We are committed to our values of multicultural, socially just, and inclusive practices focused on providing support to our diverse community.
We acknowledge that everyone processes these events differently and that they can elicit a range of emotions. We are here to serve as a supportive resource for you and the CU community.
CU students, staff and faculty may contact OVA for free and confidential support by calling 303-492-8855.
Welcome to the Office of Victim Assistance (OVA)
Traumatic events happen every day in all communities and CU's community is not exempt. Impact can vary and OVA strives to mitigate the impact of traumatic experiences by decreasing barriers and empowering victims/survivors in making informed decisions by providing free and confidential trauma informed services.
OVA provides free and confidential* information, consultation, support, advocacy and short term counseling services to University of Colorado Boulder students, graduate students, faculty and staff who have experienced a traumatic, disturbing or life disruptive event. OVA is not the office that investigates or adjudicates cases.
