The university is committed to equal access to programs and activities, admission, course offerings, facilities, and employment for all of its: (1) students, (2) employees, and (3) university community members. It is the policy of the university to maintain an environment free of discrimination against any person because of their real or perceived “protected characteristic” including race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, pregnancy (including pregnancy-related conditions), age, physical or mental disability, genetic information (including family medical history), ancestry, familial status, citizenship, service in the uniformed services (as defined in federal and state law), veteran status, expunged juvenile record, and/or the use of leave protected by state or federal law.
Discrimination or harassment based on one or more of these protected characteristics violates the dignity of individuals, impedes the realization of the university’s educational mission, and will not be tolerated.
Questions and concerns, including questions and concerns about sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, and pregnancy-related harassment and discrimination, may be referred to the University of Oregon’s Chief Civil Rights Officer & Title IX Coordinator in the Office of Investigations and Civil Rights Compliance at firstname.lastname@example.org, or to the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights.
