Institutional Equity Office
The office works to advance the University of Southern Indiana's mission of providing a dynamic, intellectual, and inclusive community, and strives to maintain an environment that respects differences and provides a sense of belonging and inclusion for everyone.
The Institutional Equity Office works with the USI community in implementing and upholding policies and practices that are consistent with federal and state mandates as well as existing University policies regarding equal access, equal employment and educational opportunity for all persons, without regard to race, religion, color, sex, age, national origin or ancestry, marital status, parental status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information, disability, or veteran status.
The Institutional Equity Office is also the Title IX Office for the USI campus. Title IX is a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs and activities. It applies to sex-based discrimination and harassment of individuals of any gender.
