Office of Institutional Equity

The University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) is committed to maintaining an environment free from sexual misconduct, discrimination or harassment based on race, color, national origin, sex, pregnancy, age, disability, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, veteran status, political affiliation, or political philosophy.

Our Mission

To achieve the UCCS mission of upholding a positive learning, working, and living environment, the Office of Institutional Equity (OIE) conducts fair, unbiased and impartial investigations into reports of sexual misconduct, protected class discrimination or harassment, or related retaliation. OIE treats all individuals who request our assistance with respect and dignity.

In addition to conducting investigations involving students and employees, OIE coordinates the provision of interim or support measures as appropriate and is responsible for implementing training on UCCS policy and related matters for the entire campus.
