Does the institution have a discrimination response policy and/or team (or the equivalent) to respond to and support those who have experienced or witnessed a bias incident, act of discrimination or hate crime?:

A brief description of the institution’s discrimination response policy, program and/or team:

It is the policy of Colorado State University that no member of the University community may discriminate against another member of the community on any basis for which discrimination is prohibited by state or federal law or University policy, including, but not limited to, race, color, religion, gender, age, national origin, veteran status, sexual orientation, and disability. Colorado State University has internal mechanisms for the expeditious resolution of complaints or discrimination involving actions that are either unlawful or violate University policy, excepting claims of sexual harassment, against the University or any of its academic faculty, administrative professionals, state classified employees, or student employees. It is also possible to pursue complaints through avenues external to the University. These avenues have their own restrictions and time limitations. However, the pursuit of any outside remedy precludes involving the provisions of this Grievance Procedure Policy.
