Diversity is one of the strengths of our society as well as one of the hallmarks of a great university. The University supports diversity and is committed to maintaining employment and educational settings that are multicultural, multiracial, multiethnic, and all-inclusive. Respecting differences is one of the University’s missions.
The University does not discriminate or permit discrimination by any member of its community against any individual based on race, color, religion, political beliefs, national origin, age (40 or older), sex (see Sexual Misconduct, Discrimination and Harassment Policy), sexual orientation, genetic information, gender identity, gender expression, disability, or veteran status in matters of admissions, employment, financial aid, housing, or services in educational programs or activities the University operates.
University policy also prohibits retaliation against a person for filing a complaint of discrimination or harassment under this policy or other applicable federal, state or local laws. This policy also prohibits retaliation against any person who assists someone with a complaint of discrimination or harassment or who participates in any manner in an investigation or resolution of a complaint of discrimination or harassment.
