Institutional Equity and Inclusive Excellence

Diversity is not something special or separate from IU South Bend's success as a whole; it is part of the central vision of the University. IU South Bend strives to create a climate of excellence, diversity, and inclusion for the campus community and to provide services to persons based upon their individual qualifications. Indiana University prohibits discrimination based on arbitrary considerations of such characteristics as age, color, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, genetic informaiton, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status.

IU South Bend 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. The University provides reasonable accommodations for disability and religion.

IU South Bend prohibits harassment on any of the protected basis listed above including racial harassment, religious harassment and sexual harassment.

For more information or to file a complaint, you may contact the Office of Institutional Equity and Inclusive Excellence which has been designated to address these concerns; or you may report bias incidents or sexual misconduct via

UA-03 Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual Misconduct Policy

Indiana University prohibits discrimination and harassment 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 (“protected classes”) in matters of admission, employment, housing, services, and in its educational programs and activities.

This policy governs the university’s response to all forms of discrimination and harassment , and sexual misconduct. Such behaviors are unacceptable under Indiana University policy. (See UA-01, Indiana University Non-Discrimination Policy.) The university does not tolerate conduct in violation of this policy and will take action to prevent and address such misconduct.

It is the policy of the university to comply with all applicable federal and state laws regarding unlawful discrimination and harassment against protected classes. Procedures for reporting incidents of discrimination, harassment and/or sexual misconduct, and for investigating and adjudicating formal complaints, are part of this policy and are included below. These complaint resolution processes may vary depending on applicable law and policies relevant to the specific misconduct.  In appropriate cases, and upon consultation with the Vice President and General Counsel, the university reserves the right to take prompt action in accordance with other university procedures. Questions about this policy, as well as the applicable complaint and complaint resolution processes, may be directed to the appropriate contacts set forth in this policy.  (See Additional Contacts.)

Individuals who believe they have experienced discrimination, harassment and/or sexual misconduct in violation of this policy, and all members of the university community who may be aware of such incidents, are encouraged to promptly report incidents of discrimination, harassment, and/or sexual misconduct to the appropriate designated officials. (See Additional Contacts.)

Some employees may have reporting obligations based on their role and responsibilities under this and other policies (See Employee Reporting Obligations.)

Retaliation against anyone who makes a report of discrimination, harassment and/or sexual misconduct, or who participates in an investigation under any of the complaint resolution procedures set forth herein, is prohibited. (See Retaliation.)

 For every report, the university will review the circumstances of the reported conduct to determine whether the university has jurisdiction over the parties involved, and to take steps within its control to eliminate, prevent, and address the reported conduct. The university will respond promptly to all reports and assess all information available; the potential Complainant(s) will be offered information regarding resources and supportive measures, as well as options regarding reporting and applicable complaint resolution procedures.  Where a formal complaint is filed or initiated, the university will provide a fair and impartial investigation and resolution, provide supportive and interim measures and, in the event a policy violation is found, impose appropriate sanctions and provide remedial measures. The appropriateness and severity of the sanctions imposed, up to and including termination or expulsion of the offender, will depend on the circumstances of the particular case. If the Respondent is not a member of the university community or is no longer affiliated with the university at the time of the report or at the time a formal complaint is initiated (including when the Respondent has graduated or left the university), the university typically is unable to take disciplinary action or conduct an investigation through the complaint resolution procedures herein.
