Sexual Assault Services, Including the Option for a Medical Forensic Examination with Rape Kit

Direct Access to Denver Health Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner

The Health Center at Auraria and each of the Auraria Higher Education Institutions entered into a formal Memorandum of Understanding with Denver Health in the Fall of 2015 to ensure that students on the Auraria Campus had access to a free medical forensic examination performed by a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (referred to as a SANE nurse) at Denver Health. Students can report directly to Denver Health Emergency Room for medical evaluation and consideration of requesting a sexual assault evidence based examination.


Health Center at Auraria and Phoenix Center at Auraria Options:

Students who have been sexually assaulted can attain services, guidance and intervention by reporting to either the Health Center or the Phoenix Center on the Auraria Campus during business hours. If after meeting with either of these agencies a student would like to obtain a forensic evidence based examination, transportation to Denver Health will be arranged at no cost to the student.
