Office of Equal Opportunity

The Office of Equal Opportunity (OEO) is the primary office at the University of North Texas responsible for enforcing the University's equal opportunity policies and for investigating complaints of discrimination, harassment and retaliation. 

The University of North Texas does not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, ancestry, genetic information, or veteran status in its application and admission process, educational programs and activities, university facilities, or employment policies. The University takes active measures to prevent such conduct and immediately investigates and takes remedial action when appropriate. The University also prohibits and takes actions to prevent retaliation against individuals who report or file a charge of discrimination, harassment, or sexual violence; participate in an investigation, or oppose any form of discrimination, harassment, or sexual violence.

Reporting Obligations:

Every member of the university community has a responsibility to keep the environment free of discrimination and harassment. The University can take corrective action only when it becomes aware of problems. Therefore, the University encourages persons who believe that they have experienced or witnessed discrimination or harassment to come forward promptly with their inquiries, reports, or complaints and to seek assistance from OEO staff. Supervisors have a responsibility to notify OEO when they receive complaints of discrimination or harassment from parties within their units.

Anyone who is aware of a suspected violation of the policies prohibiting discrimination/harassment is obligated to notify OEO.

Faculty and staff should report suspected violations to their immediate supervisor and the Office of Equal Opportunity.

Students should report violations to the administrative director or chair of the department in which the alleged incident occurred and the Office of Equal Opportunity.
