Complaints & Consulting


The University of Minnesota is committed to providing a non-discriminatory work and educational environment. The Board of Regents' policies prohibit discrimination and retaliation on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, age, marital status, disability, public assistance status, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.  The Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action implements these policies by working to create an inclusive environment and helping to educate our community and resolve conflict.

Learn more about what to do if you have experienced or observed something on campus that may be discrimination or sexual harassment, or report an incident that does not require EOAA assistance but should be reported because it potentially involved discrimination, harassment, and/or retaliation. Examples could include actions directed at individuals (such as yelling epithets), groups (e.g., hangup phone calls to a student organization office), or property (graffiti).

Alternate Reporting Method
Although the Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action can be most helpful if you contact us directly regarding discrimination concerns, you may report legal and policy violations confidentially by connecting with Ethicspoint or calling Ethicspoint at 1-866-294-8680 (toll-free).
