About

Welcome to the Office of Institutional Equity
(formerly the Office of Diversity & Equity)

The Office of Institutional Equity (OIE) ensures the University’s commitment and responsibility to foster diverse and inclusive working and learning environments.  Our work focuses on ensuring compliance with the University’s non-discrimination and anti-harassment policies, as well as state and federal laws and regulations related to equal opportunity and affirmative action.   We provide support and advice to all University offices on EEO recruitment and retention issues, provide sexual harassment prevention and diversity awareness training and serve as a resource for responding to reports of discrimination and harassment, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) (Title I) compliance, and Title IX compliance.  OIE investigates complaints of discrimination and recommends measures to mitigate discriminatory conduct that may be found to exist.  The entire University community has a shared responsibility to promote affirmative action and provide equal opportunity.  OIE helps ensure that the University complies with federal, state and local affirmative action and equal opportunity laws.  Our website contains more detailed information about each of our areas of compliance.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact a member of OIE at (860) 486-2943 or via email at equity@uconn.edu.
