Discrimination and Harassment

In order to create a positive learning, working and living environment, we must provide an atmosphere free of discrimination and harassment based upon race, color, national origin, gender, age, creed, religion, sexual orientation, disability, and veteran status. University of Colorado at Boulder (UCB) staff and student employees must complete an online discrimination and harassment workshop within their first 30 days of hire.

All UCB faculty members must complete an online discrimination and harassment workshop within their first semester of hire. After this initial workshop, all employees are required to complete the online discrimination and harassment workshop at least once every five years. There is no need to register for Discrimination and Harassment training.

Refer to the Discrimination and Harassment training page for more information.
