Reporting Sex Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, and Sexual Violence or Misconduct
If filing a report about a student, staff, or faculty please note:
Responsible Employees (CSU Faculty and Staff)
All CSU employees, including student employees, and volunteers are designated as Responsible Employees and are required to report any information related to incidents of sex-based discrimination, harassment, interpersonal violence, and/or retaliation disclosed to them by a student or about a student, to the Office of Title IX Programs and Gender Equity by calling (970) 491-1715. Note: it is also strongly encouraged that employees report incidents even when a student is not involved.
To speak with someone confidentially, refer to the Confidential Support section.
If filing a report as an impacted party:
Office of Equal Opportunity (OEO)
All reports of sex-based discrimination, harassment, interpersonal violence, and/or retaliation involving employees should be reported to OEO. OEO provides assistance in matters related to equal opportunity, affirmative action, and non-discrimination. Also, through investigations, this office resolves complaints of discrimination and harassment involving employees. Privacy will be maintained to the greatest extent possible while allowing the University to follow its investigation and adjudication processes.
