Complaints alleging discrimination based on race, creed, color, national origin, age, gender, sexual harassment, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or associational preference may be pursued in several places on campus, including the Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity. Complaints may also be pursued based on protected veteran status.
The Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity welcomes confidential inquiries from individuals wishing to discuss an incident or obtain information about the Human Rights Policy (see II-3). No action will be taken without the individual's consent. In the event the individual wishes to file a complaint, the Office will pursue either an informal or a formal complaint process. Confidentiality and retaliation apply to complaints filed under the Human Rights Policy, as well as the same procedural protections for both parties (see II-5.13).
Copies of the Human Rights Policy and the Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity Procedures for Discrimination Complaints are available upon request from the Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity.
