Our Work

The Office for the Prevention of Harassment and Discrimination monitors and evaluates campus efforts to meet requirements of the 1972 federal legislation which prohibits all forms of sex (Title IX) and race (Title VI) discrimination in educational institutions that receive federal funding. Beyond meeting the complex legal requirements for resolving sex/race discrimination, sexual/racial harassment, sexual assault and rape issues, this office helps to create and maintain a University campus community committed to positive values of equal opportunity, and fosters a climate free from all forms of harassment, exploitation, or intimidation.
