Building a safe and respectful learning environment
The Office of Equal Opportunity and Access is here to provide you with support, options, and guidance. We promote an inclusive, equitable, and caring campus culture and oversee Title IX policy and processes prohibiting sex-based discrimination in education.
The U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights has confirmed that Title IX not only prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex, but that this includes protection against discrimination on the basis of gender identity and sexual orientation. If you feel you have experienced such discrimination, you can make a report to the Equal Opportunity and Access Office.
Pregnant & Parenting Student Resources
Title IX protects students who are pregnant or parenting from discrimination in the educational environment.
