Non-Discrimination Statement

Colorado State University-Pueblo is firmly committed to maintaining a work and learning environment where students, faculty, and staff are treated with dignity and respect. Sexual harassment and acts of discrimination are illegal, often demeaning for the individual student or employee, and can disrupt the University’s positive learning and working environment. All members of the University community have a responsibility to be aware of what behaviors constitute sexual harassment, to be responsible for their own actions, and to help create an environment free of sexual harassment.

Colorado State University-Pueblo defines sexual harassment as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when one or more of the following criteria are met:

  • Submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual's employment or of academic status in a course, program, or activity.
  • Submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as a basis for employment or academic educational decisions affecting such individual.
  • Such conduct is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive to have the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual's work and/or academic educational performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work and/or learning environment.

Retaliation against any person for filing a complaint, participating in, or cooperating in an investigation is prohibited.
