Office for Equal Opportunity & Affirmative Action

Utah Valley University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age (40 and over), disability, veteran status, pregnancy, childbirth, or pregnancy-related conditions, genetic information, or other bases protected by applicable federal, state, or local law, in employment, treatment, admission, access to educational programs and activities, or other University benefits or services.

The Office for Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action is responsible for administering the University's Non-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Policy and Complaint Procedures (UVU Policy #165) for Employees and Students. The Office implements a consistent and uniform procedure for responding to and resolving internal discrimination complaints. The Director also serves as Utah Valley University’s Title IX Coordinator. Title IX prohibits discrimination, harassment, violence, and assault on the basis of sex (UVU Policy #162).

The Office partners with Human Resources, Student Affairs, and Academic Affairs to provide guidance and training to the University community regarding UVU policy and other federal, state, and local discrimination laws. The Office provides educational workshops and seminars on discrimination, harassment, and sexual violence prevention to the University community throughout the year.

The Office of Equal Opportunity, in partnership with the Chief Diversity Officer, encourages University faculty, staff, and students to promote a climate of inclusion and diversity through cultural sensitivity. UVU Inclusion and Diversity initiatives can be found at
