The Office of Institutional Equity (OIE) ensures the University’s commitment and responsibility to foster equitable and inclusive working and learning environments. Our work focuses on administering the University’s non-discrimination policies, as well as ensuring compliance with state and federal laws and regulations related to equal opportunity and affirmative action, including but not limited to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972, Title VI and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Connecticut Fair Employment Practices Act. This includes OIE serving as the office of the ADA Coordinator and Title IX Coordinator.
The entire University community has a shared responsibility to promote affirmative action and provide equal opportunity in order to ensure non-discriminatory work and learning environments.
