Equal Opportunity at IUPUI
Kim D. Kirkland, Ed.D., Director
IUPUI's Office of Equal Opportunity is committed to promoting a working and learning environment free of discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, age, disability, or veteran status. To this end, OEO is responsible for ensuring the University's compliance with all federal and state nondiscrimination requirements and serves as IUPUI's official liaison with governmental civil rights enforcement agencies. Our director reports to the Chancellor and is responsible for the development and execution of the University's Affirmative Action program. In addition, the office provides leadership and support toward developing a comprehensive and institution-wide approach to achieving and sustaining a diverse and pluralistic community of students, faculty and staff.

IUPUI Civility Statement
The IUPUI community has dedicated itself to creating an environment where each individual is valued and can succeed. Our institutional ethic compels us to foster the best possible environment for doing our work as educators, learners, and supporters of the educational process. When our members are prevented from doing their best, the entire community is diminished.
Our commitment to be a diverse and inclusive campus relies on all community members to do their part. While no set of rules or policies can wholly govern human conduct, civility requires respect and a thoughtful and careful balancing of differing points of view.
As members of an institution of higher learning, we must periodically reaffirm the fundamental ethics and values that form the framework for our university. This means fostering a climate of acceptance, mutual respect, academic freedom, and civil discourse. Civil discourse is a form of dialogue that acknowledges and gives voice to one another’s ideas, experiences, and beliefs.
Civility and respect should be extended to all persons regardless of their role, status, or social identity. We encourage everyone to speak and act thoughtfully and judiciously and with respect for one another. We may not always agree with one another, but when we disagree, we are called to respond with civility.
