Strategic Inclusion and Diversity Development Initiative

The University of Northern Colorado’s campus-wide diversity initiative aims to foster a campus community that is inclusive and welcoming of diversity in the broadest sense.  The initiative is working to build a campus culture that attracts diverse, competent students and employees, values their diversity, treats them with dignity and respect, and promotes their success. It has four primary elements: Climate, Composition, Classroom, Community. Visit the Strategic Inclusion and Diversity Development Initiative website for more information and upcoming events.

Sexual Harassment

The University prohibits sexual harassment by any faculty, student, staff, invitee, or agent of the University. The University adheres to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's definition of sexual harassment as modified for the University setting. Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitutes sexual harassment when:

  1. Submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual's employment, living conditions and/or an academic evaluation;
  2. Submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for employment or academic decisions affecting such individual; or
  3. Such conduct has the purpose of effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual's work or academic performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working or educational environment.
