Last week, we were joined by Amitabh Shah, who shared his inspiring story with our students. When he was just 23 years old, Amitabh founded the non-governmental organization (NGO), Yuva Unstoppable. Today, Yuva Unstoppable has worked in 950 schools and transformed the lives of 500,000 kids, providing improved drinking water, sanitation and women’s hygiene among other efforts across India. Amitabh was in the United States receiving the Ellis Island Award in New York alongside Eric Schmidt of Google and His Majesty Mohammad the 6th King of Morocco, and made a special visit to Morgridge. Thank you to the Morgridge Family Foundation for both supporting his efforts and coordinating his time with us.

The following resources are available to our students, faculty and staff regarding the recent acts of violence in schools:

 

Campus Resources for Students

The Health & Counseling Center (HCC) provides many medical and mental health services, including crisis and after-hours support. All DU students have access to crisis services at the HCC, regardless of insurance coverage (phone: 303-871-2205; Ritchie Center, 2240 E. Buchtel Blvd., Suite 3N).

If you need help coordinating a response of your own or programming; contact the Office of Cultural & Spiritual Life (OSCL) at jasmine.pulce@du.edu.

Student Outreach & Support is a University resource where trained staff members ensure that students are connected to appropriate campus resources, have a plan of action to meet their goals, and learn how to navigate challenging situations. The Student Support Pathway can be activated by completing a report at http://carereport.du.edu or by calling 303-871-2400 to consult.

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion provides leadership, guidance and resources in support of the University’s commitment to building a more diverse and inclusive institution. To contact the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, please email inclusion@du.edu.

Campus Resources for Employees

Benefited DU employees are eligible for the EAP, which offers up to six counseling sessions each fiscal year. These individual sessions are available at no cost. Call 303-871-2205 and follow the prompts for an after-hours counselor on call.

Let us remember that at DU, we deeply care about each other, and we work daily to foster a unified community whose members may rely on one another for support. In this time, we are all connected in our grief and sorrow for those impacted.
