The Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance (OIEC) was created in August 2014 when all investigations into allegations of harassment and discrimination — whether against a student or an employee — were integrated into one office. OIEC includes the former Office of Discrimination and Harassment (ODH, created in 2005) and the harassment and discrimination investigations formerly conducted through the Office of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution (OSC). OIEC enforces the University of Colorado Sexual Misconduct Policy, the University of Colorado Boulder Discrimination and Harassment Policies and Procedures, and the University of Colorado Policy on Conflict of Interest in Cases of Amorous Relationships. OIEC will address all complaints of discrimination and harassment for the CU Boulder campus using the methods described in OIEC's Process and Procedures. The Executive Director of OIEC, on behalf of the entire OIEC team, serves as the campus Title IX Coordinator for CU Boulder.
The University is committed to taking appropriate action against those who violate the policy on discrimination and harassment, the sexual misconduct policy, and 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. The Title IX Coordinator is responsible for sanctioning students found responsible for policy violations. The Disciplinary authority (i.e., Dean, Vice Chancellor, etc.) is responsible for sanctioning employees found responsible for policy violations.
