Based on fear of the virus, people can make the mistake of attributing it to entire groups of people, and this can lead to bias and prejudice. The university has received reports of instances where individuals on our campus have felt unwelcome, excluded, or targeted. Discrimination can take many forms, ranging from verbal abuse to physical attacks based on race, ancestry, or misunderstandings about cultural traditions. As members of the CU community, we must ensure that harassment based on race or ethnicity is not tolerated. If you feel you are being treated unfairly, singled out, or targeted please contact OIEC directly to explore options for addressing it and getting support.
Discriminatory and harassing behaviors are against university policy and have no place in our community. The Office for Civil Rights U.S. Department of Education has issued a statement regarding the coronavirus. Read the full statement.
