POLICY ON SEXUAL HARASSMENT
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.
Procedures exist to provide a prompt and fair resolution of problems and to preserve the due process rights of all involved.
