Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Mission Statement

The mission of the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is to ensure compliance with federal, state, city laws, and CUNY policies as they pertain to nondiscrimination, including sexual harassment and assault, the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.  This also includes overseeing recruitment efforts that promote affirmative action and comply with Equal Employment Opportunity Commission regulations.

In order to promote and maintain a respectful learning and working environment for the entire campus community, this office is charged with the investigation and mediation concerning complaints of noncompliance with regard to discrimination on the basis of race, color, creed, national origin, ethnicity, ancestry, religion, age, sex (including sexual harassment), sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, marital status, partnership status, disability, genetic information, alienage, citizenship, military or veteran status, pregnancy, or status as a victim of domestic violence/stalking/sex offenses, or any other legally prohibited basis in accordance with federal, state and city laws.
