Equal Opportunity Programs was founded to support the University's mission for it's workforce to reflect the diversity of its students and the community it serves. The office works with University Administration, departments, and committees to ensure that University policies and programs comply with applicable nondiscrimination requirements.

Gallaudet University reaffirms it's commitment to equal opportunity by the incorporation of Gallaudet's non-discrimination policy:

Gallaudet is committed to assuring that its employment practices do not discriminate based on race, hearing status, disability, religion, color, national origin, age, sex, covered veteran status, marital status, personal appearance, sexual orientation, family responsibilities, matriculation, political affiliation, source of income, place of business or residence, pregnancy, childbirth, or on any other unlawful basis. This policy applies to all procedures affecting applicants and employees and includes, but is not necessarily limited to: recruitment, hiring, placement, promotion, transfer, reassignment, appointment, tenure, demotion, selection for training, layoff and termination, compensation and all other conditions or privileges of employment.

The Director of Equal Opportunity Programs maintains confidentiality with regard to complaints, consultations and meditations. If the disclosure of information to another person is necessary to proceed with an investigation, the complainant (person making the complaint) will be advised first and allowed to decide whether or how to proceed.


Retaliation against a person who files a complaint of discrimination or sexual harassment, participates in an investigation of a complaint, or opposes an unlawful employment practice is prohibited by Federal and State law and University policy. Anyone who believes she or he has been retaliated against for filing a complaint of discrimination or harassment is encouraged to report the retaliatory actions to the Director of Equal Opportunity Programs. 


The University believes the mediation of disputes will encourage reporting and resolution of complaints. Mediation is appropriate when all parties involved-the complainant(s) and respondent(s)-voluntarily agree to engage in the mediation process. Mediation will involve resolution of the incident, and the resolution may include mutually agreeable sanctions if appropriate. Mediation agreements are final, and there will be no subsequent proceedings. If mediation does not resolve the situation or if the mediation agreements are not adhered to, the case will be adjudicated utilizing established disciplinary proceedings.
