EOIRS Operations During the Coronavirus Pandemic

As the University continues to closely monitor the rapidly changing developments on the COVID-19 virus, we want to share some important information regarding how we will conduct our operations during this extraordinary time. The EOIRS team will be fully functional during all business hours. We can be reached through our Syracuse University phone numbers and emails. Our Title IX Officer and EOIRS team will continue to field all inquiries and can be contacted at 315.443.4018 or titleix@syr.edu or equalopp@syr.edu. We are making some modifications to protect the safety of our University staff and the greater community. Unscheduled in-person meetings will not be accommodated for as long as remote work is mandated for the majority of the University’s workforce. If you need to meet with an EOIRS representative in person, please reach out to the person directly or at equalopp@syr.edu so we can work with you to make suitable arrangements that meet your needs while ensuring the continued safety of our staff and community.   In addition, please note the following: Access and Reasonable Accommodations
