I. Purpose

The University of Colorado Boulder (“University”) is committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of the campus community.  Campus exclusions are extraordinary measures but may be necessary in certain circumstances when someone poses a continuing danger to a person or persons or threatens the continuation of academic, research, or business operations on university property.

Definitions

Administrative Procedures: The Chancellor or the Chancellor’s delegates’ adopted procedures to determine whether to issue an exclusion or interim restriction.

Exclusion: The Chancellor or Chancellor’s delegate’s order which excludes an individual from all, or a portion of, University-owned or -leased property, either permanently or for a specified term,as a result of violation of university laws and policies, a violation of federal, state or municipal laws, or a determination by one or more administrator(s) referenced in the Procedures that the individual may be detrimental to the well-being of the University.

Interim Restriction: The Chancellor or Chancellor’s delegate’s temporary order which restricts an individual’s access to all or a portion of campus because there is evidence of an imminent risk to individual health and safety, property, or universityoperations. Interim restrictions are typically pending the results of an investigative or disciplinary process. Administrative units with authority to issue exclusions under the Administrative Procedures may also issue an interim restriction (a/k/a an interim exclusion or similar terminology).

Non-affiliate: an individual who is not a student or employee of the University of Colorado Boulder.


This definition does not include a CUPD or security officer’s action to eject or remove an individual from a ticketed public event which does not result in an ongoing exclusion order.

II. Policy Statment

By delegation from the Board of Regents and the President pursuant to Regent Law 14.B.6, the Chancellor may exclude from university property any person whose behavior is detrimental to the well-being of the University or incompatible with the function of the University as an educational institution.

The Chancellor delegates the authority to issue exclusion orders and interim restrictions as provided in the administrative procedures related to this policy. The Chancellor delegates the authority to enforce exclusions and interim restrictions to the University of Colorado Police Chief.

The administrative procedures shall provide an opportunity for individuals subject to an exclusion to request in writing, within one month from the date on which notice is given of the exclusion, a hearing. The university shall conduct any hearing in an orderly fashion so as to afford all parties the essential elements of procedural due process. The administrative procedures may permit a Chancellor’s delegate to issue an exclusion order at the conclusion of another campus disciplinary process without an additional exclusion hearing, so long as such other process provides the excluded person notice and an opportunity to be heard on the conduct underlying the exclusion order. Such disciplinary processes may include, but are not limited to, those conducted in the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance (OIEC) and Office of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution (OSCCR).
