Non-Discrimination/Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action

This policy applies to members of the Board of Trustees, all employees of the university including administrators, faculty, staff, temporary; and to all students.

IUPUI pledges itself to continue its commitment to the achievement of equal opportunity within the University and throughout American society as a whole. In this regard, Indiana University will recruit, hire, promote, educate, and provide services to persons based upon their individual qualifications. Indiana University prohibits discrimination on the basis of age, color, disability, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status.

As required by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Indiana University does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational programs and activities, including employment and admission. Questions specific to Title IX may be referred to the Office for Civil Rights or the University Title IX Coordinator at oie@iu.edu.

Indiana University shall take affirmative action, positive and extraordinary, to overcome the discriminatory effects of traditional policies and procedures with regard to the disabled, minorities, women, and veterans.

Our institutional ethic demands that we foster the best possible environment for doing our work as educators, learners, and supporters of the educational process. Therefore, IUPUI does not tolerate discriminatory harassment or intimidation of students, employees, or guests of the university, and responds to complaints of such treatment, providing proper remediation when harassment is determined to have occurred.

No qualified individual with a disability shall, by reason of such disability, be excluded from participation in or denied the benefits of university services, programs, or activities. Reasonable accommodations shall be afforded to the known physical or mental limitations of otherwise qualified individuals.

Questions, concerns, or complaints regarding IUPUI policy and practice with respect to discrimination or harassment may be directed to Anne Mitchell, Director, Office of Equal Opportunity, located at Lockefield Village, 980 Indiana Avenue, Suite 4440, Indianapolis, IN 46202.  Phone:  317-274-2306  E-mail:  oeoiupui@iupui.edu.
