Equal Opportunity and Non-Discrimination

It is the policy of the State of North Carolina to provide equality of opportunity in education and employment for all students and employees. Accordingly, the university does not practice or condone unlawful discrimination in any form against students, employees or applicants on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, sex, national origin, age, disability or veteran status. Nor does the university allow discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation with respect to internal university matters that do not contravene federal or state law and that do not interfere with the University’s relationships with outside organizations, including the federal government, the military, ROTC, and private employers. [NOTE: The NC State University equal opportunity and nondiscrimination policy includes transsexual individuals within the policy’s prohibitions against discrimination on the basis of sex. This includes actual or perceived gender identity and gender expression. See Price Waterhouse v. Hopkins, 490 U.S. 228 (1989); Smith v. City of Salem, 378 F.3d 566 (6th Circ. 2004).] Retaliation against any person complaining of discrimination is in violation of federal and state law and North Carolina State University policy, and will not be tolerated.

Retaliation against any person complaining of harassment is in violation of federal and state law and North Carolina State University policy, and will not be tolerated.
