The Equal Opportunity Program offices remain open and will continue to provide support and resources to the University of Chicago community during this period of remote learning and working. Individuals may continue to make a report or seek support and resources by contacting a member of the EOP team.
The Department of Education has issued its Final Rule under the Title IX Education Amendments of 1972. We will be reviewing the new regulations. The University of Chicago reaffirms its strong commitment to maintaining policies and procedures that address issues of sexual misconduct with care and the utmost seriousness. We will continue to provide strong support to members of our community on such issues, including through training, prevention, and ensuring that the University responds to incidents in a prompt, fair, and thorough manner.
Throughout July, we will also host listening sessions via Zoom to provide students an opportunity to discuss the new regulations with Title IX Coordinators . Please see our events calendar below for details. Staff, faculty, and students can also provide comments on the regulations using our feedback form.
Equal Opportunity Programs
The University of Chicago is a community of scholars dedicated to research, academic excellence, and the pursuit and cultivation of learning. Members of the University community cannot thrive unless each is accepted as an autonomous individual and is treated without regard to characteristics irrelevant to participation in the life of the University.
Equal Opportunity Programs provides leadership in specific areas that support this mission, including efforts to address sexual misconduct and discriminatory harassment, ensuring accessibility, and coordinating efforts to provide equal employment opportunities to all employees, applicants, and job seekers.
In keeping with its long-standing traditions and policies, the University of Chicago considers students, employees, applicants for admission or employment, and those seeking access to University programs on the basis of individual merit. The University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national or ethnic origin, age, status as an individual with a disability, protected veteran status, genetic information, or other protected classes under the law (including Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972). For additional information regarding the University of Chicago’s Policy on Harassment, Discrimination, and Sexual Misconduct, please see: http://harassmentpolicy.uchicago.edu/page/policy.
The University official responsible for coordinating compliance with this Notice of Nondiscrimination is Bridget Collier, Associate Provost for Equal Opportunity Programs. Ms. Collier also serves as the University’s Title IX Coordinator, Affirmative Action Officer, and Section 504/ADA Coordinator. You may contact Ms. Collier by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, by calling 773.702.5671, or by writing to Bridget Collier, Office of the Provost, The University of Chicago, 5525 S.
