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 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 University of Colorado Boulder does not discriminate based upon race, color, national origin, sex, pregnancy, age, religion, creed, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, veteran status, political affiliation, or political philosophy either in educational programs or activities or in employment. The Office of Discrimination and Harassment will address all complaints of discrimination and harassment 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.


Although not a comprehensive explanation of all of the rights and options available, the Guidelines for Filing a Complaint of Sexual Assault or Sexual Harassment provides additional information for victims of sexual assault, sexual harassment, or gender-based harassment.
