If you are considering reporting a concern, you can explore your options. There are skilled people who deal with a range of harmful behaviors that impact members of the CU community.
If you are a responsible employee looking to better understand your obligation to report, read more about what mandatory reporting means and when it applies.
Behavior in a classroom or an academic setting (e.g., office hours or conversations with a faculty member) that interferes with normal academic functions is considered disruptive and there are options for addressing concerns. This doesn’t mean civil discourse or disagreements within an academic setting, but rather behavior that hinders the educational process. This applies when the behavior is directed at other students or faculty members.
If a member of the CU community is a potential threat to themselves or others, or appears distressed, withdrawn, depressed, anxious, or in crisis, you can make a referral to case managers on campus who will outreach to the person of concern and offer resources and supportive services.
There are resources for understanding the university standards for ethical behavior in academics settings, research activities, and professional conduct. This page includes links to policies and guidelines, and information about where to report concerns of ethics violations or research misconduct. There are also options for anonymous reporting.
