IU South Bend’s Strategic Plan for 2014-2020, Section VIII goals, were to advance diversity and open-mindedness and create a civil, welcoming and caring culture for all.
Indiana University has a long-standing commitment to the achievement of equal opportunity within the University and throughout American society as a whole. It is the policy of Indiana University to recruit, hire, promote, educate, and provide services to persons based upon their individual qualifications. Indiana University prohibits discrimination based on arbitrary considerations of such characteristics as age, color, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status.
Indiana University takes affirmative action, positive and extraordinary, to overcome the discriminatory effects of traditional policies and procedures with regard to people with disabilities, minorities, women, and veterans.
At Indiana University South Bend, the Office of Institutional Equity and Inclusive Excellence is a leader, a partner and a resource for educating the community and creating dialogues about equal opportunity, affirmative action and inclusive excellence. We work to prevent harassment, discrimination and retaliation as well as to assure the provision of reasonable accommodations for disability and religion.Interactive Inclusion Map
