The PCA is a tri-institutional office that serves people from MSU Denver, CU Denver, and CCD. As an office, we support people who are experiencing or have experienced interpersonal violence. Interpersonal violence (IPV) includes relationship violence, sexual violence, and stalking as its three main components. The PCA trains and maintains a team of confidential advocates pursuant to CRS § 13-90-107(k). This means that the advocates working for the PCA are legally prohibited from sharing information shared with them by a survivor seeking support. The PCA also operates a Violence Prevention Education Team staffed by students who are trained to provide peer education regarding issues related to IPV.
All registered student organizations at MSU Denver are required to have a full-time MSU Denver faculty or staff advisor. Advisors have a variety of roles with an organization including a mentor, teacher, leader and follower. The advisor and students must have regular communication in order for them to advise the organization on its day-to-day operations and activities. Ideally, the advisor assists the organization members and officers in staying in compliance with their charter, constitution and bylaws, MSU Denver policies as well as local, state and federal laws and ordinances. Advisors should also assist student leaders in developing critical thinking skills in the areas of event planning, risk management, organization management, group processes and ethical decision making among other areas for personal development.
