Tufts University is committed to employment practices and a learning environment that are free of discrimination and harassment. The Office of Equal Opportunity (OEO) works to support this effort. OEO’s primary responsibility is to establish uniform guidelines in order to promote a work and educational environment at Tufts University that is free of discrimination and harassment and to affirm Tufts’ commitment to equal opportunity, Title IX, and affirmative action. The OEO delivers this support through:
Education and training initiatives for faculty, staff and students, including confidential support and resources for affected individuals as well as prevention and awareness training for all members of the Tufts community;
Resolving allegations of discrimination, harassment and sexual misconduct for all members of the Tufts community as well as guidance on potential conflict of interests that may arise;
Providing oversight and guidance to faculty and staff in handling workplace accommodations as outlined in the University’s ADA policy.
The OEO partners with other key resources at Tufts University who all have a mutual commitment of ensuring compliance with all federal, state and local laws and who are uniformly guided by Tufts’ vision and mission.
