Title IX Information

The Global Debate Symposium and Colorado College are committed to maintaining an environment that is free of unlawful harassment and does not discriminate on the basis of sex within its educational programs and activities. Thus, in accordance with federal law and its commitment to a fair and open campus environment, the Global Debate Symposium and Colorado College cannot and will not tolerate discrimination against or harassment of any individual or group based upon race, sex, color, religion, ethnic or national origin, genetic information, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, veteran's status, or any factor that is a prohibited consideration under applicable law. The Global Debate Symposium and the college recognizes its responsibility to increase awareness of sex discrimination, prevent its occurrence, and diligently investigate reports of misconduct.

The Global Debate Symposium and Colorado College policy adhering to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 requires Global Debate Symposium representatives to report to the Title IX office of Colorado College any allegation of gender-based harassment or any other discrimination or harassment that is covered in Title IX made by a student or adult attending the Global Debate Symposium.  All members of the Global Debate Symposium community are mandated to promptly report incidents of sexual harassment and discrimination to the University Title IX Coordinator, the Title IX Coordinator for Students, a Deputy Title IX Coordinator, or other mandatory reporters employed by the Global Debate Symposium, or other entities, in order to adhere to the university's, and Global Debate Symposiums, Title IX process.

These are the steps we will take if a guest on our campus makes an allegation:

1.     Identify to the person making the allegation that we are mandatory reporters and will be making a report to the Title IX office.

2.     Have a written report completed by a minimum of two members of the Global Debate Symposium staff documenting the allegation.

3.     Ask the person making the allegation:

a.     Would you like to talk to someone confidentially?

b.     Would you like our assistance in reporting to the police?

c.     Would you like to seek protective and remedial remedies?

If the person making the allegation would like to seek preventative remedies, the Global Debate Symposium will implement whatever protective and remedial measures are decided upon by the Title IX office.  Should you wish to learn more about Colorado Colleges Title IX office and their role on campus, please visit https://www.coloradocollege.edu/other/titleix/policy-procedures.html
