UCCS Policy: UCCS Appendix/CU System Sexual Harassment Policy
UCCS is committed to maintaining a positive learning, working and living environment. The
University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age,
disability, creed, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status in admission and access to,
and treatment and employment in, its educational programs and activities. (Regent Law,
Article 10). In pursuit of these goals, the University will not tolerate acts of sexual
harassment or related retaliation against or by any employee or student. Such behavior is
reprehensible because it subverts the mission of UCCS and threatens the careers,
educational experience, and well-being of students, faculty, and staff.
It is also a violation of this Policy for anyone acting knowingly and recklessly either to make
a false complaint of sexual harassment or to provide false information regarding a complaint.
Robust discussion and debate are fundamental to the life of the University. Consequently,
this policy shall be interpreted in a manner that is consistent with academic freedom as
defined in Regent Law, Article 5 D, amended 10/10/02. It is intended that individuals who
violate this Policy be disciplined or subjected to corrective action, up to and including
termination or expulsion.
Sexual harassment and related retaliation are prohibited on the UCCS campus and in
UCCS programs and activities wherever they occur. As a place of work and study, UCCS
must be free of sexual harassment and related retaliation. A Sexual Harassment Policy has
been developed to ensure that UCCS: 1) maintains an environment conducive to fulfilling its
educational mission, 2) complies with its ethical and legal obligations, 3) has procedures to
respond to allegations of sexual harassment and related retaliation, and 4) provides
information about this policy to all members of the UCCS community. For more information,
