EEO Investigations

The Office of Institutional Equity (OIE) is responsible for investigating claims of discrimination and harassment based on protected classifications.  See the flow chart detailing OIE’s investigatory process.

Members of OIE are responsible for objectively investigating complaints of discrimination and discriminatory harassment to determine if employee conduct violates the University’s non-discrimination policies.  These policies are construed to provide the same protections as state and federal law.  Where investigations reveal the presence of discriminatory or harassing behavior, OIE is responsible for making recommendations that are designed to mitigate the effects of discriminatory conduct.

We also assist with developing and implementing the University’s nondiscrimination and affirmative action policies, procedures, and programs and offer information, consultation, and training to the University community on these areas of focus.

Additional information about reporting discrimination and OIE’s complaint procedures, as well as a Discrimination and Discriminatory Harassment Complaint form, and Amorous Relationship Disclosure forms, can be found using the links on this page.  If you have a specific question or need further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact a member of OIE at (860) 486-2943 or by email at equity@uconn.edu.  For matters related to UConn Health, please contact UConn Health OIE at (860) 679-3563 or by email at equity@uconn.edu.  If you have concerns about behavior that does not involve discrimination or discriminatory harassment, see Additional Resources.
