Sexual Assault /Victim Assistance Services

Direct Access to Denver Health Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner

Students who have been sexually assaulted can attain services, guidance and intervention by contacting the Health Center at Auraria or the Phoenix Center at Auraria. If after meeting with either of these agencies a student would like to obtain a forensic evidence based examination, the Health Center at Auraria has a formalized agreement with Denver Health that provides all students on the Auraria campus direct access to a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) who is trained to perform medical forensic examinations. These examinations are provided at no charge.

The Health Center at Auraria is available to coordinate and pay for transportation to Denver Health for the SANE exam, if this is requested. Options include using current ride services such as Uber and Lyft, taxi services and/or various public transportation alternatives. The exact mode of transportation is determined at the time of need, in consultation with the individual needing transportation.

Students who access a SANE for a medical forensic examination are NOT required (at any time) to participate with law enforcement investigations or any criminal justice response.
