Colorado State University strives to create and maintain a work and student environment that is fair, humane, and respectful so that each member of the University community is treated with dignity and rewarded for such relevant considerations as ability and performance. The University is committed to preventing, correcting and disciplining incidents of unlawful sexual harassment. CSU's policy applies to all persons affiliated with the University, including its students and employees.
Colorado State University is committed to providing a safe environment for all members of our community, including faculty, staff, students, volunteers and visitors. This is not only the responsibility of our leadership through example, development of policy, and administrative actions, it is a responsibility that we all share, must be willing to understand and to which we must all contribute. Sexual harassment is an issue to which we must pay special attention, due to its particularly corrosive effects on our community, the legal ramifications of particular cases, policy implementation and the perception of our campus.
All university employees are required to take the Workplace Answers sexual harassment awareness online module. Shortly after their official start date, every new employee will receive an email from Workplace Answers with a unique link, associated only with them, allowing the employee to access the training module.
As an educational institution, we are committed to a healthy and safe environment, which is particularly dependent on the trusting relationships that develop between colleagues, instructors and students, and student peers. Sexual harassment in any form undermines this trust. As members of the CSU community, your assistance with the university’s efforts to ensure that we have a healthy, welcoming and safe campus for all is appreciated.
