Notice of Non-Discrimination

The University of Cincinnati does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, age, disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, military status (including veteran status), ancestry, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, pregnancy, parental status (including status as a foster parent), or any other status protected by law (collectively, “protected class”), in its academic, education, and employment programs and activities.

The University does not tolerate discrimination, harassment, or retaliation on these bases and takes steps to ensure that students, employees, and third parties are not subject to a hostile environment in University programs or activities.

The University responds promptly and effectively to allegations of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. It promptly conducts investigations and takes appropriate action, including disciplinary action, against individuals found to have violated its policies, as well as provides appropriate remedies to complainants and the campus community. The university takes immediate action to end a hostile environment if one has been created, prevent its recurrence, and remedy the effects of any hostile environment on affected members of the campus community.  Additionally, in reviewing, investigating, or deciding whether there has been a violation of its policies, the University takes into consideration the definition of antisemitism set forth in Executive Order 2022-06D for purposes of determining whether the alleged act was motivated by discriminatory antisemitic intent.

UC is committed to the ideal of universal Web accessibility and strives to provide an accessible Web presence that enables all University community members and visitors full access to information provided on its websites. Every effort has been made to make these pages as accessible as possible in accordance with the applicable guidelines.

The University of Cincinnati provides free aids and services to people with disabilities to communicate effectively with us, such as qualified sign language interpreters and written information in other formats (large print, audio, accessible electronic formats, other formats). The University of Cincinnati also provides free language services to people whose primary language is not English, such as qualified interpreters (call 513-556-5503) and information written in other languages. If you need these services, please tell any employee of a University of Cincinnati health program or activity.

If you believe that the University of Cincinnati has failed to provide these services or discriminated in another way, you can file a grievance with the Office of Equal Opportunity and Access and/or Office of Gender Equity & Inclusion. You can file a grievance in person, by mail or by email. If you need help filing a grievance, the Office of Equal Opportunity & Access and Office of Gender Equity & Inclusion staff are available to help you.
