If you have or currently are being discriminated against and/or harassed based on one of your characteristics, here are some options for what you can do next:

  • Reporting to the Office of Equity:

    • Whether or not the person who hurt you is part of the CU Denver | Anschutz community, we are here to help you.
      • If the person who hurt you is a CU student, faculty, or staff member, our office can launch an investigation to formally resolve your incident. This means that if after an investigation it is determined that the individual has engaged in behavior which violates our Nondiscrimination Policy, we can issue disciplinary sanctions from requiring them to go through training up to and including expulsion from school (for students) or termination of employment (for staff, faculty). Our office will work with you to determine any interim measures, and to address any safety concerns, with the hope that you will be able to continue your academic pursuits, or employment (if you choose to) with as little interruption as possible. Some examples of interim remedies we may offer are:
        • no contact orders;
        • alternative arrangements for classes, extensions on assignments (with faculty approval);
        • access to classes online;
        • offering incomplete (with faculty approval) or withdrawal (with faculty approval);
        • and/or safety escorts around campus.
          • In cases where serious or imminent threat to you or the campus community exists, we may consider taking actions such as building, location or campus exclusions.
      • Can I report to both the University and the police? Absolutely! Please let us know that you’d like to also report to the police, and we can reach out to the appropriate law enforcement unit on your behalf. We may be able to set up a shared meeting to coordinate your reporting to both the University and law enforcement. We know it can be hard to talk about what happened, so we often work together with the police in an attempt to make things easier on you.
    • You can file a report with us via phone, email, or online form:
  • Reporting to the police:

    • At any time, you can call 911 and tell the operator that you need to report a stalking.
    • If you are not in immediate danger, you can also call the non-emergency line for the police in the jurisdiction where the stalking occurred (or most frequently occurred if it happened in multiple jurisdictions). On the non-emergency line you can set up a time to talk to a detective to give your statement.
      • Can I report to both the University and the police? Absolutely! We work hard to collaborate with our local police whenever possible and with your permission. If you report to both, please let the police know that you are a student and want to report to us as well.
  • I just want to talk to someone about this:

    • There are many confidential options available for you for support:
      • On the Auraria campus, Center for Identity & Inclusion provides both support and community around diversity. Their staff can meet with you to discuss what has happened and more about these options above.
      • On the Anschutz campus, the Office of Inclusion and Outreach can also help support you around an experience of discrimination or harassment based on a protected characteristic.
      • If you are being harassed or discriminated against because of a disability, our Disability Resource Center can help you understand your rights and options.
      • Downtown, our LGBTQ Student Resource Center provides safe space, community, conversation, and support around LGBTQ experiences, including discrimination or harassment.
      • The Veteran Student Services office can help you navigate campus as a veteran, helping new students transition into the campus community and ongoing students achieve success.
