About the Office

  • The Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance (OIE) supports efforts to uphold the University's commitment to creating and maintaining a working and learning environment that is inclusive and free of discriminatory conduct as required by the University's policies and procedures.

    • Facilitating resolution of concerns through advising and providing guidance and support to parties and their supervisors;
    • Conducting formal investigations in situations in which alternative resolutions efforts are unsuccessful or inappropriate;
    • Partnering with administrators and supervisors to protect against retaliation; and
