This includes monitoring institutional employment practices and procedures, as well as investigating and resolving discrimination and harassment complaints. The office conducts training programs and presentations on affirmative action, sexual and racial harassment, and a wide range of diversity programs and workshops in order to assure the most wholesome and productive learning and work environment for students, faculty, and staff.
