There seems to be a constant focus from the media, on campus sexual assault. They bombard us with salacious headlines, and graphic details while placing blame anywhere they can, whether that’s on the university, the investigative process or a multitude of other factors. Often times emphasizing the conflicts between the administrative reporting process, and a police investigation.
In an effort to combat such obstacles the Denver District Attorney’s office has established a collaborative effort between all of Denver’s university campuses, law enforcement, investigators, hospitals and other organizations. That collaboration is known as the Title IX Working Group, made up of agency stakeholders in sexual assault response, forming increased coordination regarding cooccurring Title IX and criminal investigations.
We will talk with Denver District Attorney, Mitch Morrissey and University of Denver Director of Equal Opportunity and Title IX Coordinator, Kathryne Grove about specific ways these agencies work together, and how best to serve students who are impacted by sexual assault on campus.
Title IX Working Group Participating Agencies include:
- Denver Police Department
- Denver District Attorney’s Office
- The Blue Bench
- Community College of Denver
- Johnson & Wales University
- Metropolitan State University of Denver
- Regis University
- University of ColoradoDenver/Anschutz Medical Campus
