About Us

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.

Policies & Directives

Code of Conduct (Regents Policy)

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 violence, retaliation, and potential violations of the policy against nepotism. 

Education & Training

The Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action (EOAA) offers a variety of educational workshops to the University community.  These workshops are offered to any unit on campus.  For large audiences, EOAA also can customize workshops to specifically address a unit’s needs.  EOAA also offers a number of online trainings.
