Policies and Procedures

As an institution of higher learning, Indiana University strives to teach the value of diversity. University policies and procedures actively seek to ensure that everyone is given equal access and opportunity to IU programs and services in a respectful and supportive environment.

We at the Office of Affirmative Action review IU policies to ensure they provide equal access and are nondiscriminatory. Additionally, the office enforces university policies, along with federal, state, and local laws, through its complaint process. Please see Complaints & Grievances for more information.
