Office of Institutional Access and Equity (IAE)

IAE Mission

To affirm and acknowledge relevant laws and regulations; to promote access, opportunity and diversity among the student and employee populations; to maintain policies, procedures and programs that prohibit discrimination and retaliation against employees, students and applicants, and provide for a redress of grievances; and to assist in the initiation of specific efforts to overcome under-utilization and under-representation of women, minorities, persons with disabilities, and covered veterans.

One of our goals is to increase awareness and understanding of University sexual and racial harassment policies through educational programs for faculty, staff, and students.
