Bias Response

Bias Response Statement

The University of Northern Colorado is dedicated to being a safe, ethical, caring, and diverse community where our students, faculty, staff, and visitors feel welcome. Because we value intellectual and academic freedom, open exchange of ideas, and well-being of our community, we will speak out against intolerance and support efforts that promote an inclusive community based on respect for all persons. The University will not seek to discipline or prosecute individuals for expressing views in a manner protected by their rights under the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States, but may challenge protected speech that conflicts with institutional values by speaking out against it, providing educational opportunities, offering support to those affected, and using other legal means, if, and when appropriate.

For additional support, please contact the Dean of Students Office at (970) 351-2001 and/or
