During the Spring 2021 semester, OIE staff members will continue to work remotely to address reports of sexual misconduct, protected class harassment and discrimination, and conflict of interests in cases of amorous relationships. To schedule a virtual meeting or a phone call with OIE, individuals can email the office at equity@uccs.edu. OIE also accepts reports via their online reporting form found here: https://equity.uccs.edu/reporting/reporting-form

Mandatory Reporting


Mandatory Reporting

Reporting Requirement

A Responsible Employee who witnesses or receives a written or oral report alleging that a member of the University community has been subjected to or has committed an act of sexual misconduct, protected class discrimination and harassment, or related misconduct must promptly report it to the Office of Institutional Equity (OIE). A failure to report this information promptly to the OIE is a policy violation.

If an individual discloses an incident to a Responsible Employee who by definition is a mandatory reporter, but the individual wishes to maintain privacy and requests that no resolution process be pursued, that no disciplinary action be taken, or that the allegation not be reported to law enforcement, the Responsible Employee remains required to report all relevant information to the OIE.
