Meet the Staff

The Office of Employee Equity (OEE) plays a significant role in providing advocacy for employees. It can be said that the OEE protects the institution’s wellbeing by protecting individuals’ wellbeing. This may come in the form of removing impediments to access, encouraging a supportive environment, ensuring compliance with state or federal policies or providing resources.

Policies & Procedures

Each of the policies monitored by the Office of Employee Equity addresses concerns associated with equity and diversity in the workplace.
