Welcome to EOAA!
The University of Minnesota's Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action (EOAA) was founded in 1972 to ensure that all University community members uphold federal and state civil rights laws and regulations, as well as University equal opportunity policies.
The EOAA Office envisions a University community that is equitable—one that of values the diversity of its workforce and student body and is free from discrimination and harassment.
With this vision in mind, the Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action is committed to eliminating individual and systemic barriers that inhibit individuals and groups from attaining equal access to University of Minnesota employment, education, programs, and services. In service to both the University of Minnesota and the broader community, we provide expertise and system-wide leadership for the University in the following areas: Advocacy, Policy Development and Issue Identification, Education, Discrimination Consultation and Investigation, Community Connections, and Compliance.
