Diversity and Equal Opportunity

Staff in the Diversity and Equal Opportunity office lead a focused effort to build inclusive systems and a welcoming environment at UAF. Staff provide conflict resolution and mediation services, ensure equality of employment and educational opportunity, and work to eradicate discriminatory practices.

DEO staff investigate complaints of discrimination and sexual harassment and work with parties to find resolution. If students or employees believe they are being treated differently because of their race, color, national origin, gender, religion, disability, age (over 40), genetic code, sexual orientation or retaliation, they can lodge a complaint with DEO. Complaints can be filed online at www.uaf.edu/oeo/complaints/ or by visiting the office.

DEO is in the Nordic House at 739 Columbia Circle. For more information call 474-7300 or visit www.uaf.edu/oeo/.
