Office of Discrimination and Harassment
The Office of Discrimination and Harassment (ODH) was created on August 15, 2005, the implementation date of the University of Colorado at Boulder Policy on Discrimination and Harassment. The ODH also enforces the University of Colorado Sexual Harassment Policy and Procedures and the University of Colorado Policy on Conflict of Interest in Cases of Amorous Relationships. The Director of the ODH, on behalf of the entire ODH team, serves jointly as the campus Title IX Coordinator along with the Director of the Office of Student Conduct.
The Office of Discrimination and Harassment will address all complaints of discrimination and harassment based upon race, color, national origin, sex, pregnancy, age, disability, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression or veteran status when the alleged harasser is an employee. If the alleged harasser is a student, the complaint will be addressed by the Office of Student Conduct.
The University is committed to taking appropriate action against those who violate the policy on discrimination and harassment, the sexual harassment policy or the policy on amorous relationships. Individuals who violate these policies will be disciplined or subjected to corrective action, up to and including termination or expulsion.
The revised Discrimination and Harassment Policy
now includes pregnancy, gender identity, and gender expression as enumerated protected classes. While the Discrimination and Harassment Policy has always included pregnancy, gender identity, and gender expression as subsets of other protected classes, they are now explicitly listed in the policy.
