Nondiscrimination statement

The University of Rochester does not discriminate on the basis of age, color, disability, domestic violence victim status, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, genetic information, marital status, military/veteran status, national origin, race, religion/creed, sex, sexual orientation, citizenship status, or any other status protected by law in matters of admissions, employment, housing or services or in the educational programs or activities it operates.

The University complies with all federal and state laws that prohibit discrimination based on the protected categories listed above, including Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits sex discrimination (including sexual harassment and violence based on sex) in the University’s educational programs and activities, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability.

Contacts and resources

If you wish to report a nonacademic concern or matter, and it is unclear how to report this information, you can submit a complaint or comment form and staff will be sure that it reaches the proper University department.

Specialized processes exist to make discrimination complaints, which can be raised with the Title IX coordinators, the University Ombuds, or by submitting a bias-related incident report. For a comprehensive list of helpful offices and individuals, see the CARE resource center.
