Discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, pregnancy,1 physical or mental disability, medical condition (cancer-related or genetic characteristics), genetic information (including family medical history), ancestry, marital status, age, sexual orientation, citizenship, or service in the uniformed services (as defined by the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994)2 is against the law and prohibited in University policy. Discrimination occurs if an employee or applicant is treated less favorably with regard to the terms and conditions of his or her employment or search for employment because the individual possesses, or is perceived to possess, an attribute belonging to the categories stated above.

Sexual harassment consists of unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature, when submission to or rejection of this conduct explicitly or implicitly affects a person’s employment or education, unreasonably interferes with a person’s work performance, or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive working environment. It is a form of gender discrimination and violates both federal and State law.

If you are a University employee and feel that you have been discriminated against or harassed, you may contact the Staff Diversity and AA/EEO Compliance Office, Campus Healthcare, Human Resources, or the Title IX/Sexual Harassment Coordinator (sexual harassment only), for information on available resources and assistance in filing a complaint or grievance. Faculty should contact the Academic Personnel Office.
