Job Summary

The Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance (OIEC) at the University of Colorado Boulder encourages applications for a prevention education coordinator! This position supports the development and delivery of evidence-based programming to address the individual, relational, and societal causes of sexual, interpersonal, and identity-based harassment, discrimination, and violence.
A key part of this role will be to implement and facilitate primary prevention education, including skill building programs to support the adoption of healthy prosocial behaviors, harm reduction strategies, and anti-oppression practices. This includes skills for applying effective bystander intervention strategies, establishing consent and sexual boundaries, recognizing sexual coercion and abusive behaviors, and recognizing and mitigating bias. This requires tailoring programming for specific populations such as first year students, marginalized and underserved communities, and at-risk groups. This position will provide education about university policies and practices to ensure students, staff, and faculty understand reporting, resolution options, and support resources.
