Nondiscrimination Policy

It is the policy of the University of Nebraska to administer all of its educational programs and related supporting services in a manner which does not discriminate based upon age, race, ethnicity, color, national origin, gender, sex, pregnancy, disability, sexual orientation, genetic information, veteran's status, marital status, religion or political affiliation.  

Any unwanted communication of a sexual nature, whether verbal, physical, written, or pictorial, which has the purpose or effect of intimidating the person receiving the communication, or any solicitation of sexual conduct of any nature when submission to or rejection of such contact is used as the basis for either implicitly or explicitly imposing favorable or adverse terms and conditions of academic standing constitutes sexual harassment and will not be condoned or tolerated.  

Appropriate corrective action will be taken toward any student or employee who is found to have violated UNL's non-discrimination or sexual harassment policies. Further, UNL commits itself toward the assurance of non-retaliation toward the person suspecting or experiencing discrimination or sexual harassment.

If you suspect or experience discrimination, sexual harassment, or retaliation toward yourself or others, please keep records of specifics and report the conduct.

If you do not feel comfortable telling the person to stop the behavior, or if the behavior does not cease once you have made the request that it do so, you may tell an administrator, professor or counselor. These individuals are then required to pass the information on to the people who can take corrective action.

You may also contact the Office of Student Judicial Affairs, 106 Canfield Administration Building South, (402) 472-2021, the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance, 128 Canfield Administration Building North, (402) 472-3417, or the Director of the Office for Civil Rights, Department of Education, Washington, D.C. 20202.

More information regarding discrimination, harassment and avenues available is posted on most bulletin boards in buildings throughout the UNL campus.
