IN AN EMERGENCY CALL 911
A report of sexual misconduct, protected class discrimination or harassment, or related retaliation may be pursued in different ways. Depending on the nature of the alleged conduct, a complainant or victim may pursue a criminal process, a university process, both processes, or neither process. A victim may also decline to notify authorities.
Reports, complaints and other information must be provided in good faith. It is a violation of UCCS policy when a person knowingly or recklessly alleges a false complaint of sexual misconduct or provides false information during the course of an investigation, and violators may be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including expulsion or termination of employment, as applicable. This does not apply to reports made or information provided in good faith, even if the facts alleged in the report are not later substantiated.
