As part of University of Colorado’s settlement of a sexual harassment lawsuit with two former students, the university hired lawyer, law professor, and Title IX expert Nancy Hogshead-Makar to review existing gender discrimination and sexual harassment policies and recommend new ones.
Hogshead-Makar released a report a few weeks ago citing considerable progress on the part of the university in many areas of gender discrimination and sexual harassment policy.
A few things left to work on include:
- more refined policies on student pregnancy and parenting
- implementing the recommendations from the Sexual Assault-Sexual Harassment (SASH) Task Force’s Gender Violence Prevention Plan
- more efforts at prevention
- and finally a consolidated policy that elucidates all the university’s discrimination and sexual harassment policies and prevention efforts
