UNLV is committed to providing a workplace and educational environment, as well as other benefits, programs and activities, that are free from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. To ensure compliance with federal and state civil rights laws and regulations, and to affirm its commitment to promoting the goals of fairness and equity in all aspects of the educational program or activity, UNLV has developed internal policies and procedures that provide a prompt, fair, and impartial process for those involved in an allegation of discrimination or harassment on the basis of protected class status, and for allegations of retaliation. UNLV values and upholds the equal dignity of all members of its community and strives to balance the rights of the parties in the grievance process during what is often a difficult time for all those involved. The President has designated the Office of Equal Employment and Title IX as the office who will respond to complaints of unlawful discrimination and harassment.
The Office of Equal Employment and Title IX is also responsible for overseeing the interactive process for employees required under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
The Office of Equal Employment and Title IX reviews all concerns under Title 4, Chapter 8, Section 13 of the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) Handbook. Please note there are separate processes for Title IX concerns and non-Title IX concerns of unlawful discrimination and harassment.
UNLV does not discriminate in its employment practices or in its educational programs or activities, including admissions, on the basis of sex/gender pursuant to Title IX, or on the basis of any other legally protected category as is set forth in NSHE Handbook Title 4, Chapter 8, Section 13. Reports of discriminatory misconduct, questions regarding Title IX, and/or concerns about noncompliance with Title IX or any other anti-discrimination laws or policies should be directed to UNLV’s Title IX Coordinator Michelle Sposito.
