Office of Student Equity & Compliance (OSEC)

The Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Office of Student Equity & Compliance (OSEC) is located in Savitz Hall, Rm 203. The office plays a significant role in providing students support and protection under Title VI and Title IX.

Title VI

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin in any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.

Title IX

Contrary to popular belief, Title IX does not protect only athletes in higher education.  It also protects any and all students who feel they have been harassed or discriminated against due to their sex/gender. It is important to talk to someone if you believe you witnessed sex discrimination or sexual misconduct. Witnesses are also protected by Title IX and have the right to file a complaint and report the incident.

Title IX states:

"No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."
