Welcome New SAIV Members!
We are so glad to have you as part of our community! Students Against Interpersonal Violence (SAIV) has been established for the purpose of creating awareness in the student body regarding issues of interpersonal violence, which includes sexual assault, domestic violence, stalking, and battering. SAIV also advocates for policy and procedure changes on campus in order to increase safety and offer support to those affected by interpersonal violence. SAIV works closely with the University of Colorado Denver Center on Domestic Violence and The Phoenix Center located on the Auraria campus.
If you have any questions or have any ideas for SAIV events, please feel free to contact one of SAIV's officers: Shanna Mae Petersen, Brennalynn Flaherty, and Katie Brown. SAIV looks forward to your participation with SAIV sponsored events. SAIV is dedicated to building a community of students that understand, spread the word, and will work to eradicate interpersonal violence. Thanks for joining! We are excited to meet you and look forward to collaborating with you in the near future.
SAIV was formed during the 2007-08 academic year by students in the Program on Domestic Violence (now Program on Gender-Based Violence) in the School of Public Affairs. A graduate Assistant for the Center on Domestic Violence and other members of her cohort formed and provided leadership for the group. Students Against Interpersonal Violence - (SAIV) is established for the purpose of creating awareness to the student body regarding issues surrounding interpersonal violence (including sexual assault, domestic violence, stalking, and battering). SAIV will also advocate for policy and procedure changes on campus in order to increase safety and support to those affected by interpersonal violence.
SAIV strives to better educate students, staff, and faculty on the Auraria Campus about Interpersonal Violence. Areas of importance would include: domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. SAIV creates an accessible and safe platform for everyone to discuss difficult topics in our culture.
If your organization has selective membership, please describe the intake process.
SAIV has no selection process on group members. It encourages everyone that is interested in our vision to join our cause.
