Protected Class Discrimination and Harassment
Protected Class Discrimination and Harassment Policy

The policy also prohibits retaliation and other related violations.

The OIE may resolve a report of alleged misconduct through the Formal Adjudication process when the alleged misconduct, if true, would be prohibited under the Applicable Policies.
The Formal Adjudication Procedures include five major stages: 1) Filing a Report and Evaluation of the Complaint, 2) Evidence Gathering and Review, 3) Determination Regarding Responsibility, 4) Opportunity for Appeal, as applicable, and 5) Sanctions, as applicable.
Regardless of the resolution option utilized, participants have specific rights and access to resources.
