To preserve an equitable, responsible, and humane atmosphere for study and work, Naropa University affirms the principle that all individuals have a right to achieve their academic and professional aspirations free from discrimination, harassment, and/or related retaliation based upon protected classes.
Further, it is critical to this commitment that anyone who may have been the target of or has experienced discrimination or harassment in the context of university educational programs, activities or employment, to feel free to report their concerns for appropriate investigation and response, without fear of retaliation.
To foster a climate that encourages prevention and reporting of discrimination, harassment, or related retaliation, Naropa University will provide prevention efforts, educate the community, respond to all reports promptly, provide interim protection measures to address safety, and recognize the inherent dignity of all individuals involved.
Committed to equality, Naropa University does not discriminate in offering access to its educational programs and activities or employment practices. For purposes of this Naropa University policy, "protected classes" refers to race/color, religion/creed, national origin/ancestry, age (40 or older), disability, genetic information, veteran status, or any other status protected by applicable Boulder Municipal Code, State of Colorado, or federal law, in any of our educational programs, activities, admissions, or employment policies.
Sex (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, transgender status are protected classes covered under Title IX and VAWA; these protections are addressed in the university Gender Equity, Sexual Misconduct, and Relationship Violence Policy and Procedures, found online here: www.naropa.edu/gender-equity<http://www.naropa.edu/gender-equity>.
