Based on CU Boulder policy, intimate partner abuse means any act of violence or threatened act of violence against a person with whom the individual is or has been involved in a sexual or dating relationship.

This violence includes threats, assault, property damage or threat of violence to one’s self or to the family members of the sexual or romantic partner when used as a method of coercion, control, punishment, intimidation or revenge.

For more information on how to report, what to report, what the administrative process looks like and other questions about reporting, visit the Don't Ignore It website. For further information on reporting, please visit CU Boulder’s free and confidential Office of Victim Assistance (OVA), an advocacy and trauma-informed counseling resource for students, staff and faculty. 

If you are concerned about a friend’s relationship, we are here to help those who are supporting survivors, too. They are located in room S440 on the fourth floor of the Center for Community (C4C), open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. You can also email or call 303-492-8855 for help, which offers after-hours phone counselors.
