Discrimination or Harassment Complaints

The Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity Office investigates complaints by administering an equal opportunity complaint procedure- including investigating allegations of prohibited discrimination and harassment brought by students, faculty and staff. The Affirmative Action & Equal Opportunity Office resolves both informally and formally complaints of discrimination based on race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, disability, age, positive HIV-related blood test results, status as a disabled or Vietnam Era Veteran, or gender identity or expression.

Here you will find links to the procedures and policies in place for dealing with issues of discrimination and harasment at UVM. Please contact the Office of AA/EO if you have any further needs.
