The Maverick Guide: General University Policies- Harassment

Relevant excerpt

Colorado Mesa University prohibits behavior that is so severe, pervasive, and objectively offensive, and that so undermines and detracts from the victim’s educational experience, that the victim-students are effectively denied equal access to an institution’s resources and opportunities.

Behaviors that may constitute harassment include, but are not limited to the following examples, when they are part of a pattern of conduct that rises to the level of the standard set forth above:

  • Racial, ethnic, gender or other slurs directed at another person
  • Malicious name calling or allegations of wrong doing
  • Derogatory graffiti
  • Threat making
  • Preventing access to any college resource or activity
