Hate Crime/ Bias Incidents

As stated in Colorado Revised Statute 18-9-121 Bias-motivated crimes, the Colorado GeneralAssembly defines a Bias-motivated crime as a crime committed with the intent to intimidate orharass another person because of that person’s actual or perceived race, color, religion,ancestry, national origin, physical or mental disability, gender identity or sexual orientation.

A hate or bias related crime is not a separate, distinct crime, but is the commission of acriminal offense which was motivated by the offender’s bias. For example, a subject assaults avictim, which is a crime. If the facts of the case indicate that the offender was motivated tocommit the offense because of his/her bias against the victim’s race, sexual orientation, etc.,the assault is then also classified as a hate/bias crime

The University of Colorado Board of Regents Policy10: Non-Discrimination, affirms that theUniversity of Colorado is committed to building a community of students, faculty, and staff inwhich diversity is a fundamental value. People are different, and the differences among themare what we call diversity -- a natural and enriching hallmark of life. A climate of healthydiversity is one in which people value rich panoply of diverse ideas, perspectives andbackgrounds, individual and group differences, and communicates openly.

If you believe that you may have been a victim of a bias-motivated crime, contact UCCS PD at(719) 255-3111.

Reported crimes may involve individuals not associated with the institution.
