UAlbany's Commitment to Equity & Inclusion

It is the mission of the Office of Equity & Compliance to support UAlbany's commitment to providing a living, learning and working experience that is safe, welcoming and free from workplace discrimination and sexual violence. 

The University at Albany condemns all forms of discrimination and harassment, whether subtle or overt, and expects that all members of the University community join in assuring that all of our community members are accorded the dignity and respect they deserve. This includes all terms, conditions and privileges of employment and access for students, faculty and staff.

UAlbany's commitment to equity and compliance is demonstrated through our efforts to promote equal opportunity and maintain a safe, accessible, inclusive and welcoming educational and working environment.


Our Office's Role at UAlbany

To ensure compliance, the Office of Equity & Compliance:

  • identifies patterns of these forms of misconduct in need of address
  • conducts student and staff trainings related to these topics
  • provides information about on and office campus resources and support services
