In accordance with this policy and with applicable federal and state law, the University prohibits discrimination in admissions, its programs and activities, employment and advancement on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, ancestry, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, marital status, pregnancy, genetic information, disability, military service, protected veteran status, political affiliation, arrest record or conviction record.
Retaliation against an individual for filing a discrimination complaint or for participating in a complaint investigation violates this policy and may constitute a form of illegal discrimination. University policy also prohibits harassment of individuals on any of the bases listed above. An act based on an individual's status as listed above may violate this policy and warrant University discipline even if the act does not rise to the level of unlawful discrimination, retaliation or harassment.
