University policy as well as New York State and Federal Law prohibit discrimination. The Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) ensures that the University is in compliance with State, Federal and local non-discrimination Laws and Executive orders by receiving, reviewing and investigating allegations of unlawful discrimination. Furthermore, the University actively promotes a climate of tolerance and will vigorously address all forms of discrimination.

To file a complaint

If you elect to file an informal or formal complaint of discrimination or sexual harassment, please refer to the Discrimination and Sexual Harassment Complaint Procedures. These procedures contain information about the internal complaint process as well as information about state and federal agencies through which you may also file a complaint. To process an internal complaint, please fill out “Form A” and return it to the Office of Diversity and Inclusion located in University Hall, Room 207.
Consultation and/or Filing a Complaint


To the extent practicable, and consistent with applicable law, the privacy of all individuals involved in and all information related to a complaint investigation and/or resolution process will be maintained. Such information will be disseminated only to those individuals with a legitimate need to know for the purpose of investigating or resolving a complaint, or as required by law.


Federal and state law prohibits retaliation against individuals who oppose unlawful employment discrimination, participate in employment discrimination proceedings, and investigations or otherwise assert their rights under the law. Retaliation is serious and sanctions may be imposed if it is found to have occurred.
