Welcome to Equal Opportunity, Inclusion, & Resolution Services!
Our Mission Statement
The mission of the Office of Equal Opportunity, Inclusion & Resolution Services works with students, faculty, and staff, to foster a climate of inclusion, access, and opportunity. Our office collaborates across all divisions of the University to build community and cultivate a culture of respect, safety, and equity that recognizes the value of diversity in all its forms.
This office is responsible for making sure that the University complies with all state and federal laws, pertaining to accommodations, access, FMLA, Title IX, Title VI, Title VII, in addition to investigations that involve Sexual & Relationship Violence, discrimination and harassment among other things.
We train and educate the campus community around diversity and inclusion and work with all colleges and business units to complete the University’s Affirmative Action Plan.
We coordinate staff leave accommodations, lead campus-wide disability efforts and disability accommodations. Our office also investigates and resolves allegations of discrimination, harassment, bias, and misconduct.
Syracuse University strives to respect the rights of others and while we respect everyone’s right to freedom of speech, with those rights comes a responsibility; to do so in ways that are appropriate and sensitive to the rest of the community.
Chancellor Kent Syverud’s Orange Friends Blog provides open letters from the Chancellor regarding campus issues and other information that is important to the campus community.
