Affirmative Action

Indiana University prohibits discrimination on the basis of age, color, disability, ethnicity, gender (including sexual harassment), marital status, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status. The Indiana University East Office of Affirmative Action exists primarily to ensure institutional compliance with federal and state nondiscrimination legislation, executive orders, guidelines and regulations. Any IU East student or employee who believes that he or she has been discriminated against or harassed on the basis of any of the above factors has access to procedures for filing a complaint with the affirmative action officer.

The Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Policy of Indiana University pledges itself to continue its commitment to the achievement of equal opportunity within the University and throughout American society as a whole. In this regard, Indiana University will recruit, hire, promote, educate, and provide services to persons based upon their individual qualifications. Indiana University prohibits discrimination based on arbitrary considerations of such characteristics as age, color, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status.

Indiana University shall take affirmative action, positive and extraordinary, to overcome the discriminatory effects of traditional policies and procedures with regard to the disabled, minorities, women and Vietnam-era veterans.
