Welcome to the Office of Diversity and Equity

The Office of Diversity and Equity (ODE) is responsible for diversity and equity compliance initiatives at the University.  We provide support and advice to all University offices on EEO recruitment and retention issues, provide sexual harassment prevention and diversity training and serve as a resource for diversity, discrimination and harassment, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) (Title I), and Title IX compliance.  ODE investigates complaints of discrimination and recommends measures to mitigate discriminatory conduct that may be found to exist.  This Office also facilitates requests for workplace accommodations made by employees with disabilities.  The entire University community has a shared responsibility to promote affirmative action and provide equal opportunity.  ODE helps ensure that the University complies with federal, state and local affirmative action and equal opportunity laws.  Our website contains more detailed information about each of our areas of diversity and equity compliance.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact a member of ODE at (860) 486-2943 or via email at ODE@uconn.edu.
