Education is one of the three prongs of the Affirmative Action and Equity mission.  Our office sponsors and participates in a wide variety of educational programs, dialogues, and training throughout the campus community to promote inclusiveness, respect and equity.  In addition, you can find here, and in other sections of our website, reports and data that reflect our commitment to ensuring that relevant and timely information is available to campus constituents.


The University of New Hampshire seeks excellence through diversity among its administrators, faculty, staff and students.  We are committed to enhancing and sustaining an educational community that is inclusive and equitable, and cherish these values as being inextricably linked to our core mission.  We are a public institution with a long-standing commitment to equal employment and educational opportunity for all qualified persons.  We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, veteran status, or marital status.  This applies to admission to, access to, treatment within, or employment in UNH programs or activities.

As a public institution, we preserve a deep concern for the dignity and civil rights of all members of the community while sustaining a teaching, learning, and working community that fosters critical thought and debate.  We acknolwledge the right of individuals to hold strong personal beliefs and opinions while expecting that all individuals will be treated with respect.

I ask that you join me in a determined effort to keep the campus free from discrimination and harassment by following the spirit as well as the letter of our policies.  To this end, please familiarize yourself with the University's policies, procedures and best practices in working with diverse persons and groups.
