University Safety

Colorado Technical University (CTU) is committed to ensuring a safe and secure environment that fosters positive experiences and academic growth for our students. From the physical safety at any CTU campus, to protection of sensitive personal and financial information, as well as to maintaining a community that is free from all forms of harassment. Protections via various policies have been put in place to safeguard our students throughout their academic journeys at CTU in addition to prevention and awareness campaigns and annual training opportunities for employees, faculty and students.

Consumer Information is provided to prospective students and employees as required by the U.S. Department of Education. This includes the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy, the Campus Crime Statistics Report, and information about Title IX and CTU’s Sexual Misconduct Policy.

All students, faculty, and employees are encouraged to report incidents of sexual harassment including quid pro quo harassment, hostile environment harassment, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking to the University Title IX Coordinator or designee.
