Individuals who have been subjected to protected-class discrimination or harassment, sexual assault or other forms of sexual misconduct, intimate partner abuse (including dating or domestic violence), or stalking have several options for reporting. Depending on the nature of the alleged conduct, individuals may pursue a university process, a criminal process, both processes, or neither process.
OIEC Resolution Procedures are separate and apart from any law enforcement or other court process, such as a civil law suit or criminal prosecution, that may be related to an incident reported to our office.
The Office of Victim Assistance can confidentially talk through the different options for reporting a complaint to the university or to law enforcement, and assist with seeking medical assistance or orders of protection through the courts.
Any incident of sexual misconduct, intimate partner violence (including dating and domestic violence), stalking, protected-class discrimination or harassment, or related retaliation can be reported to the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance (OIEC) at 303-492-2127; by email at email@example.com; or through the online reporting form (anonymous reporting option available).
Many of the behaviors prohibited by university policies are also violations of Colorado law and can be reported directly to law enforcement.
