Responding to Injury

In the event of an emergency...

In the event of a life-threatening emergency, please call 911. Note that calling 911 from any Auraria campus phone will dispatch the Auraria Police Department. You may also reach the Auraria Police Department by calling 303-556-5000 from a cell phone or off-campus location.

For after-hours mental health support and/or victim assistance, students and employees may call 303-615-9911.

In crises involving MSU Denver students, and after the immediate health and/or safety needs are met, please file a CARE report so that applicable follow-up can be coordinated to support the affected student(s).

Is an employee injured or potentially injured?

Employee-related incidents (for administrators, classified staff, all categories of faculty, and student employees) involving possible injury or harm should be reported using the workplace compensation process as soon as possible following an incident. Please see information on the Human Resources website for additional information.

Some University departments maintain other processes for handling incidents that occur within the department. Please inquire with the department in which the incident or accident occurred, if applicable, about any additional protocols and/or resources.
