BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - University of Colorado chancellor Phil DiStefano is urging students and faculty to get involved in an effort to improve the campus’ social climate.

DiStefano said during his state of the campus speech Tuesday that “insensitive and uncivil incidents” on campus are eroding a welcoming and inclusive environment for everyone. He added that all students, faculty and staff are vital to transforming the campus into a more inclusive place.

The university is in the middle of a series of community discussions about how to make people feel welcome.

The Daily Camera reports (https://tinyurl.com/o7f2jov ) the speech comes as CU’s Boulder and Denver campuses are being investigated by the U.S. Department of Education for potentially violating federal gender equity laws concerning sexual assault, sexual harassment and retaliation following a number of incidents and complaints on campus.
