What is the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (as amended) (“ADA”) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (“Section 504”)?
What conduct is prohibited by the University’s Policy?
What is retaliation?
Retaliation is an adverse action taken against a person participating in a protected activity because of the person’s participation in that protected activity. Retaliation against an individual for alleging harassment, supporting a party bringing a complaint, or assisting in providing information relevant to a claim of harassment is a serious violation of University policy and will be treated as another possible instance of harassment or discrimination. Acts of alleged retaliation should be reported immediately to Bridget Collier, Associate Provost for Equal Opportunity Programs and ADA/ Section 504 Coordinator for the University and will be promptly investigated.
