Affirmative Action/Title IX

Fitzelle and Students in the Quad

SUNY Oneonta continues a full commitment to the policy of affirmative action and equal opportunity. It is the policy of our college to provide equal employment and educational opportunity for all qualified people without regard to age, disability, marital or parental status, national or ethnic origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation and gender identity or veteran status. It is also the policy of the college to provide an environment where employees and students are free from harassment and discrimination, including sexual harassment and sexual violence.

The Affirmative Action Officer and Title IX Coordinator (AAO) is charged with assuring compliance with state and federal requirements for equal employment opportunity, as well as for equal educational opportunity and compliance with Title IX. This includes acting as a resource for victims of sexual assault and other sexual misconduct.

You are welcome to contact or visit the Affirmative Action Office to speak with the AAO about any questions or concerns you have regarding these issues. If this is an emergency, immediately contact University Police at x3550.
