Description: Support and Safety Assessment oversees Tell Someone, the Student Consultation Team, Employee Consultation Team, student sexual misconduct and violence, and the Select Agent Suitability Program.
Tell Someone – If you are concerned about a student, Tell Someone. There may be times when you become concerned about a CSU student or university employee. Referrals will be made to campus resources that can develop strategies and use resources to discreetly help students and employees who may be in distress. If you believe a member of the campus community is in imminent danger to themselves or others, immediately contact CSU police by calling 911 or the department’s non-emergency number at 970-491-6425. It is not uncommon for people who will develop mental illnesses in their lifetime to do so when they are young adults — high school or college-aged. College is also the first time when many of our students are away from home, separated from their families and friends — the people who may notice changes in the student’s personalities before new friends would. Tell Someone: (970) 491-1350

When allegations of sexual harassment or sexual violence by a student are reported, and a student is found to have violated CSU policy, sanctions will result and may include expulsion from CSU. All members of the CSU community are expected to not infringe upon the rights of others. Sexual harassment and sexual violence cannot be tolerated and are prohibited by the University.
