Advancing inclusive practices to support the creation and maintenance of an equitable and supportive learning and working environment.
Support for All
At the University of Arizona, we strive to create a working, learning and living community where all members and visitors feel welcomed and valued.
The Office of Institutional Equity (OIE) is committed to supporting a campus culture where all members of our community have equitable access to academic and professional opportunities and are supported in their individual and collective pursuits and efforts.
The Office of Institutional Equity acts to ensure equal opportunity and to safeguard the civil rights of University community members. This commitment is demonstrated to individuals and the community through ongoing outreach, education, and effective response and resolution as well as advocacy and collaboration with colleagues and administrative partners.
The Office of Institutional Equity is responsible for reviewing and, where appropriate, objectively investigating complaints of discrimination and harassment in accordance with the Nondiscrimination and Anti-harassment Policy. Where investigations establish discrimination or harassment, actions are taken to remediate the impact of discriminatory conduct. OIE also objectively addresses and investigates complaints of sex discrimination and sexual harassment (including sexual misconduct) against students.
Creating an Equitable Environment for All
Discrimination and Harassment
The University prohibits discrimination and harassment on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity and genetic information.
In alignment with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, the University of Arizona prohibits all forms of sex discrimination, including sexual harassment, sexual violence, such as sexual assault, interpersonal violence and stalking.
We welcome all members of the University community to reach out to the Office of Institutional Equity if they have a concern, need assistance or support, or would like to provide a referral or a report of discriminatory conduct.
