The Office of Equal Opportunity serves ISU faculty, staff, and students in ensuring equal access to employment and educational opportunities. The Office advances diversity, equity, inclusion, and fairness. We do this through outreach, education, training, and complaint resolution, as well as through the advancement of ISU’s anti-discrimination/ harassment and affirmative action policies. We provide resources for individuals who have experienced discrimination or harassment based on identity and protected class, and for those who have experienced power-based interpersonal violence. The Office provides individuals a safe environment for consultation and advice prior to choosing any particular next steps in their situation. Interactions with The Office of Equal Opportunity are low-risk and private.
