The Office of Equity investigates complaints in which the person submitting the complaint alleges that a staff, faculty member, or third party, violated the University’s Policy on Discrimination and Harassment. This includes discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, parental status, marital status, age, disability, citizenship status, veteran status, genetic information or any other classification protected by US law.  Harassment, whether verbal, physical or visual, that is based on any of these characteristics is a form of discrimination.
