The Office of Discrimination and Harassment (ODH) has long served the community of University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) by enforcing its policy on Discrimination and Harassment. The ODH also enforces the University of Colorado Sexual Harassment Policy and Procedures and the University of Colorado Policy on Conflict of Interest in Cases of Amorous Relationships.
UCCS will not tolerate acts of discrimination or harassment based upon Protected Classes, or related retaliation against or by any employee or student. For purposes of this policy the term "Protected Classes" refers to persons who are protected under federal, state, local or Regent law on the basis of particular characteristics and includes the characteristics of race, color, national origin, sex, pregnancy, age, disability, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, veteran status, political affiliation, or political philosophy.
UCCS is committed to taking appropriate action against those who violate the policy on discrimination and harassment, the sexual harassment policy or the policy on amorous relationships. Individuals who violate these policies will be disciplined or subjected to corrective action, up to and including termination or expulsion.
