The Office of Campus Diversity and Compliance will make reasonable efforts to preserve the confidentiality of their investigation and resolution efforts but cannot guarantee anonymity to complaining parties or witnesses. The university will not accept complaints when the complainant cannot be identified.
All University employees and students have the right to complain about any conduct, which they reasonably believe constitutes discrimination. No university official may take disciplinary or other adverse action against a person who genuinely but mistakenly believes himself or herself to be discriminated against, even if the practices complained of do not, in fact, constitute discrimination.
Threats or other forms of intimidation or retaliation against complainants, respondents, witnesses or investigators will constitute a violation of University Regulation 04.02.010 and may be subject to separate administrative action, including termination for cause.
