Harassment and Discrimination

Auburn University is committed to providing a working and academic environment free from prohibited discrimination and harassment and to fostering a nurturing and vibrant community founded upon the fundamental dignity and worth of all its members. Auburn University prohibits harassment of its students and employees based on protected classes and works to eliminate prohibited behavior from its academics and employment through corrective measures and education.

The Office of AA/EEO oversees compliance with the Policy Prohibiting Harassment of Students, the Policy Prohibiting Harassment of Employees, and the Policy on Sexual and Gender-Based Harassment and Other Forms of Interpersonal Violence.

Protected classes are race, color, sex (which includes sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression), religion, national origin, age, disability, protected veteran status, or genetic information.

Auburn University also prohibits retaliation against any individual for opposing a practice he/she reasonably believed to be discriminatory; for filing an internal or external complaint, grievance, or charge; or for participating in any investigation or proceeding, in accordance with Auburn University’s policies.

Complaints regarding harassment or discrimination based on protected class should be reported to the Office of AA/EEO by completing this online reporting form, by completing a Discrimination Complaint Form and submitting it to the Office of AA/EEO & Title IX, or by contacting the Office of AA/EEO & Title IX at eeo@auburn.edu or 334-844-4794. The Office will investigate complaints to determine whether a policy violation has occurred and, if so, to determine an appropriate response.
