It is the policy of DePaul University that no person shall be the object of discrimination on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, marital status, parental status, family relationship status, physical or mental disability, military status, or other status protected by local, state, or federal law in its employment or its education settings.
The Vice President of the Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity (OIDE) or his/her designee is responsible for receiving, processing, and resolving complaints of discrimination, harassment, and sexual harassment. When the University receives a complaint of discrimination and/or harassment it will promptly investigate the allegation in a fair and expeditious manner. Every complaint is based on its own facts and circumstances, which can impact the course of the University’s investigation. The following is an outline of the procedure generally followed once a complaint has been brought to the attention of the University.
The University possesses two Policies that prohibit discrimination, harassment, and sexual harassment – the Anti-Discriminatory Harassment Policy, and the Sexual Harassment Policy. Both can be found on the University’s Policy and Procedures Website at http://policies.depaul.edu/, and with specific links on this website’s pages dedicated to both policies. The Anti-Discriminatory Harassment Policy and Procedures encompasses the University's Section 504 Grievance Procedures. For more information and the process and procedures for both Policies, please select the applicable link on the left side of this page.
