The Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance (OIEC) was created in August 2014 to integrate resolutions of all complaints of sexual misconduct, and protected-class discrimination and harassment—whether against a student, employee, or third-party—into one office. In addition, we developed an ADA Compliance unit to ensure campus access, provide employment accommodations, and to work collaboratively with Disability Services.

Utilizing a comprehensive and integrated structure with dedicated staff in four units for case resolutions, education, assessment, support measures, and ADA accommodations, OIEC’s mission is to create and foster a safe, inclusive, and accessible environment and to be a national leader in the prevention and response to sexual misconduct, and protected-class discrimination and harassment. OIEC will continuously refine its policies, procedures and practices to maintain legal compliance while utilizing evidence-based and innovative models of assessment, prevention, and response. 

OIEC implements and enforces three university policies: Discrimination and Harassment; Sexual Misconduct, Intimate Partner Abuse and Stalking; and Conflict of Interest in Cases of Amorous Relationships.

OIEC is committed to preventing discrimination or harassment based on race, color, national origin, pregnancy, sex, age, disability, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, veteran status, political affiliation, or political philosophy. OIEC is also committed to preventing any form of related retaliation as prohibited by university policies and state and federal laws.
