The Office for Equity & Compliance oversees the University's compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which protects people against discrimination based on race, color or national origin in programs that receive federal financial assistance. Title VI reads:
“No person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."
Discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin includes discrimination based on a person’s actual or perceived race, color, national origin, ethnicity, or ancestry. This includes discrimination based on the country, world region, or place where a person or his or her ancestors come from; a person’s limited English proficiency or English learner status; or a person’s actual or perceived shared ancestry or ethnic characteristics, including membership in a religion that may be perceived to exhibit such characteristics (such as Hindu, Jewish, Muslim and Sikh individuals).
For more information on Title VI, see the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights Education and Title VI.
