The Principles of Community support the Colorado State University and the College of Agricultural Sciences mission and vision of access, research, teaching, service and engagement. The College of Agricultural Sciences’ Diversity Catalyst Team works for positive change that enhances the campus climate for all people, and serves as a resource to all members of the college.
Colorado State University encourages anyone experiencing what they believe to be discrimination or bias on campus to report that behavior through any of the channels available. Inclusion and respect are among our Principles of Community and core values. If an incident occurs outside of the College of Agricultural Sciences events and activities, we are here to help you. We are committed and accountable as a community to this end. Use the information on this page to guide you to the appropriate resources if you encounter bias or discrimination.
Concerns with a professor, instructor or staff member:
- Consider going to the faculty/staff member’s supervisor (usually a department head for faculty) first.
- Contact the student success team leadership: Addy Elliott, Matt Camper, Beka Crocket, or Dr. James Pritchett.
- It’s always OK to go to use Tell Someone.
- It’s always OK to go to a faculty/staff member you trust.
- If it is sexism or discrimination, it’s always OK (and mandatory for employees) to go to OEO. When in doubt, go anyway.
