Harassment and Sexual Misconduct
Students at CU Boulder are subject to policies prohibiting protected-class discrimination and harassment, sexual misconduct, intimate partner abuse, and stalking regardless of whether something occurs on or off campus. This includes participating in activities associated with a student organization. Unwelcome or offensive conduct related to these policies can be reported to the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance (OIEC).
All student organizations must be open to all full-time, fee-paying students. This is not a requirement, but a condition for receiving student fee funding for operations, events and travel.
Student fee regulations
- Student fees may not be used in support of any organizations that systematically exclude from participation any student on the basis of religion, race ethnicity, nationality, creed, sexual orientation, marital status, age, gender, political affiliation and/or physical disability.
- Honor societies that discriminate on the basis of G.P.A., academic achievement or class standing, and fraternities and sororities or any organizations which do not have membership open to all students, may be funded only for events they sponsor which are on campus, free and open to the public.
- Competitive organizations will receive student fee monies under the agreement that secondary teams or organizations will be created for those students that do not qualify for the main team. As many organizations as possible will be created to fulfill the need, until facility space has been exhausted.
