New structure for equity and compliance, now overseen by Campus Life
OIED enhances focus on diversity and inclusion
As of February 1, 2024, the federal compliance, reporting and investigatory functions involving discrimination and harassment (Title VI and VII), gender discrimination and sexual misconduct (Title IX) and disability discrimination and accessibility accommodations (ADA/504) are now managed by the newly-created Office of Equity Compliance and Reporting in the Division of Campus Life. This restructuring more closely connects the offices that manage incident reports with those that investigate those incidents and provide support to students. This office also supports faculty and staff who file reports, in close collaboration with the Office of the Provost and University Human Resources.
The Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity (OIED), which previously managed these functions, remains focused on enhancing inclusion and diversity, including assessing and expanding inclusion and campus climate efforts, and continues to oversee affirmative action in employment and bias as it relates to our campus.
Faculty, students, staff and University visitors should use the link below to report incidents or concerns about bias, discrimination, harassment, disability, gender discrimination and sexual violence.
