Equal Opportunity at IUPUI

The work of the IUPUI Office of Equal Opportunity is guided by federal and state statutes for equal employment opportunity, non-discrimination, and affirmative action. Federal and state rules relative to Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action protect the rights of all individuals to take and hold a job, engage in all activities of the University, and to advance free from discrimination on the basis of personal characteristics such as race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, age, disability, or veteran status.
