Office for Equal Opportunity and Civil Rights

To further the University’s commitment to ensuring a living, learning, and work environment where all members of the University community feel welcomed and valued, the Office for Equal Opportunity and Civil Rights (EOCR) is responsible for monitoring compliance with the University’s policies prohibiting retaliation, harassment, discrimination, and sexual and gender-based harassment and other forms of interpersonal violence. EOCR also monitors compliance with the policies and procedures created to ensure equity and access to academic and employment opportunities, programs, and services.  

EOCR offers a wide range of services for students, including informal and formal options for resolution of complaints of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation; education and training sessions for students about their rights and responsibilities under the University’s policies on equal opportunity and civil rights; and assistance with accommodations for disabilities (in conjunction with the University’s Student Disability Access Center) and religious observances.
