Dear Gallaudet Community:
Now that the University has transitioned to a remote work environment, the Office of Equal Opportunity Programs (EOP) continues its commitment to ensuring that all university programs are free from unlawful discrimination. Members of the community are expected to maintain civility and respect under remote conditions, just as they would face-to-face. Anyone impacted by unlawful discrimination within the university environment is encouraged to contact EOP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are a mandated reporter, please know that reporting alleged discrimination or harassment based on a protected category that involves members of the campus community is required, regardless of how you learn of the potential misconduct.
EOP meetings and investigations will be conducted remotely to assure that any discriminatory behaviors (including online and virtual misconduct) are addressed promptly.
University Policy 2.28, Anti-Discrimination Policy and Complaint Procedure can be found in the Administration and Operations (A&O) Manual: 2.28 Anti-Discrimination Policy and Complaint Procedure.
University Policy 1.10, Reasonable Accommodation, can be found at 1.10 Reasonable Accommodation.
The Office of Equal Opportunity Programs is here to work with you to engage and support a living, learning, and working environment that values respect, diversity, inclusivity, and academic excellence.
Remain safe and well!
Director, Equal Opportunity Programs/ADA Coordinator
