Consulting & Complaints

The EOAA Office envisions a University community that is equitable—one that values the diversity of its workforce and student body and is free from discrimination and harassment. We act as a neutral party to advise individuals and departments about perceived, existing and potential discrimination, harassment, sexual misconduct (sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, and relationship violence), retaliation, and potential violations of the policy against nepotism. 

EOAA responds to the following concerns through informal problem solving or formal investigation: discrimination, harassment, sexual misconduct (including sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, and relationship violence), nepotism, and retaliation.
