About Us

The Office of Institutional Equity:

  • enforces the university’s non-discrimination policies
  • educates the community about our policies and practices
  • connects people to resources that can support them if they experience discrimination or retaliation
  • listens to the concerns of the campus community

If you experience, witness or hear about any form of discrimination or retaliation, you can make a report. We will contact you, discuss your options and rights, and can investigate whether university policies were violated.

If you are concerned about confidentiality or don’t want an investigation, we will discuss any concerns that you might have.

We investigate all forms of sex-based violence including sexual misconduct, dating or intimate partner violence, stalking, sexual exploitation, or invasion of sexual privacy. Our office also investigates the use of racial or ethnic slurs to harass or intimidate. This type of conduct may violate the non-discrimination policy and/or the Student Standard of Conduct or Human Resources policies.
